Deadline has shared the trailer of ‘Breathe’ which is the film debut of Andy Serkis. Starring Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy, it’s based on the life story of Robin Cavendish.
You can read the synopsis of the film below and watch the trailer.
From a script by two-time Oscar nominee William Nicholson, the inspirational true story centers on the adventurous and charismatic Robin Cavendish (Garfield) who has his whole life ahead of him when he is paralyzed by polio at age 28 and given just months to live. Against all advice, his wife Diana (Foy) brings him home from the hospital and with devotion and witty determination encourages him to lead a long and fulfilled life. Refusing to be limited by expectations, they raise their young son and devote their lives to helping other polio patients.
The Imaginarium’s Jonathan Cavendish, upon whose parents’ story the film is based, is producer. Serkis, who’s reprising his role as Caesar in next month’s War For The Planet Of The Apes, calls Breathe “a deeply personal story to all of us at The Imaginarium… To have the European premiere of my directorial debut in London, my hometown, is beyond my wildest dreams.”
