In a dystopian near future, single people, according to the laws of The City, are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days or are transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods.
In early 18th century England, a frail Queen Anne occupies the throne and her close friend, Lady Sarah, governs the country in her stead. When a new servant, Abigail, arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah.
A woman on the run from the mob is reluctantly accepted in a small Colorado town. In exchange, she agrees to work for them. As a search visits the town, she finds out that their support has a price. Yet her dangerous secret is never far away.
Three teenagers are confined to an isolated country estate that could very well be on another planet. The trio spend their days listening to endless homemade tapes that teach them a whole new vocabulary. Any word that comes from beyond their family abode is instantly assigned a new meaning. Hence 'the sea' refers to a large armchair and 'zombies' are little yellow flowers. Having invented a brother whom they claim to have ostracized for his disobedience, the über-controlling parents terrorize their offspring into submission. The father is the only family member who can leave the manicured lawns of their self-inflicted exile, earning their keep by managing a nearby factory, while the only outsider allowed on the premises is his colleague Christina, who is paid to relieve the son of his male urges. Tired of these dutiful acts of carnality, Christina disturbs the domestic balance.Written by

i think the movie pretty much gives the solution for the ending.the girl has tried to escape but within the family rules.it is not important if she will escape because i do not think she knows what escape really means.she does not have the tools to make it to the outside world anyway.it is quite impossible to understand how she functions,and which rules are governing her actions.i think that the end just shows that her world is as empty and dark as the back of the car where she is.it is our own need to translate the movie into our world that we think of escape.it is of no importance if she 'makes it'or not.and that is the concept of the movie.but i also think that the director does not show her going out (whether she can or cannot) because that would mean a sense of freedom,and the movie's concept is totally against that kind of notion.
