Breathe Trailer #1 (2017) *Andy Serkis’ Directorial Debut*

In addition to completing his motion capture masterpiece performance as Casesar (yes, it may have passed Gollum), Andy Serkis has also directed his first film.  Serkis was Peter Jackson’s second-unit director on The Hobbit Trilogy, but Breathe will mark his feature film debut, and this film looks like Oscar bait.  Claire Foy is hot off of the success of The Crown, and Andrew Garfield seems to have put his Spider-debacle behind him with Hacksaw Ridge.  Read the synopsis of this inspiring story below, courtesy of IMDB, and Breathe will hit theaters on October 13, 2017.

Adventurous and charismatic, Robin Cavendish has his whole life ahead of him when he is paralyzed by polio while in Africa and given just months to live. Against all advice, Robin’s wife Diana brings him home from hospital where her devotion and witty determination inspire him to lead a long and fulfilled life. Together they refuse to be limited by expectations, dazzling others with their humor, courage and lust for life.
