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.


A touching and moving story that’s let down a little by having more than a slight similarity to the Stephen Hawking biopic “The Theory of Everything”. Both have similar story lines of disabled people defying the odds and fighting to prove that their disability is no reason that they shouldn’t live a long fulfilling and happy life.

Andrew Garfield is on top form as Robin Cavendish and Clare Foy as his loving and supportive wife ,shows that there’s more to her than just playing the Queen in the excellent “The Crown”.

Breathe is a tender and heart-warming that shows that no what life throws at you if you have the will to fight adversity then anything is possible.
