Breathe is the inspiring true story of Robin Cavendish (Garfield), who is confined to bed and given only months to live after contracting polio at the age of 28. With help from his wife Diana (Foy), her twin brothers and the groundbreaking ideas of inventor Teddy Hall, Cavendish emerges from the hospital ward in a Heath Robinson style contraption, and devotes the rest of his life to helping fellow patients and the disabled.
‘Andy Serkis’s directorial debut…is so full of laughter that one might easily forget its sombre subject matter. Part exuberant love story, part great escape adventure, this is an old-fashioned tale of triumph over adversity.’
