BREATHE - Wednesday 18th April 2018
Directed by Andy Serkis
For his directorial debut, Andy Serkis brings to life the inspiring true love story between Robin and Diana Cavendish (Andrew Garfield, Claire Foy), an adventurous couple who refuse to give up in the face of a devastating disease. When Robin is struck down by polio at the age of 28, he is confined to a hospital bed and given only a few months to live.
With the help of Diana's twin brothers (Tom Hollander) and the groundbreaking ideas of inventor Teddy Hall (Hugh Bonneville), Robin and Diana dare to escape the hospital ward to seek out a full and passionate life together - raising their young son, travelling and devoting their lives to helping other polio patients. Written by two-time Academy Award nominated writer William Nicholson, and shot by three-time Academy Award winner Robert Richardson, Breathe is a heartwarming celebration of love and human possibility.
“Part exuberant love story, part great escape adventure, this is an old-fashioned tale of triumph over adversity that refuses - like its protagonists - to succumb to confinement.”. – Mark Kermode, UK Observer
“Garfield employs the limited physical tools he has at his disposal to powerful effect. Foy applies the same poise -- and reined-in emotion -- she exhibited as the young Queen Elizabeth to deal with Diana's extremely challenging situation..” – Vicky Roach, The Daily Telegraph
“Breathe is moving, informative and gently funny.”. - Donald Clarke, Irish Times
