An “Unfaithful” without murder — or men — writer-director Helen Lesnick’s “Inescapable” centers simply on the passion and guilt that ensue when two women commence a torrid affair under the noses of their best-friend female spouses. Modest production values, routine dialogue and limited psychological depth don’t get in the way of pic’s clear raison d’etre, which is its numerous, fairly explicit sex scenes. They should provide impetus for good niche home-format biz after further gay fest rounds.
Dragged from San Diego to the Pacific Northwest so her g.f. can attend a medical conference, Jesse (Natalie Anderson) is sulky and jealous over Susan’s (Tanna Marie Frederick) reunion with former college mate Beth (Katie Alden), at whose suburban home they’re staying. Yet while duo attends their professional conclave, Jesse rushes full-on into infidelity with Beth’s mutually-attracted spouse Chloe (Athena Demos). Thus days are spent in furious copulation, nights in the discomfiting company of their chatty, oblivious partners. Taking more and more outrageous risks, cheating pair seems determined to be “caught.” Wrap is too throwaway, but otherwise adequately acted and packaged pic manages to be sexy without becoming exploitative.
