Breathe - Movie Synopsis & Plot

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, traveling 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.

MOVIE REVIEW

What begins as a dull competition over what could be more British – Andrew Garfield’s cheeriness or director Andy Serikis’ colorfully drab opening scenes—turns into a surprisingly engaging drama about a dude who contracts polio and defies the odds by living for several more decades. Breathe is a less-powerful and less-well done version of The Theory of Everything (and about a less-interesting person), but it’s a suitably decent biopic nonetheless.
