Marking the directorial debut of Andy Serkis (War For The Planet of the Apes), BREATHE arrives on digital download on February 19, 2018, and on Blu-ray™ and DVD on February 26th 2018, courtesy of STXinternational, a division of STX Entertainment, and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Based on the true story of producer Jonathan Cavendish’s own parents, BREATHE is an inspirational and highly emotional celebration of bravery and human possibility, a love story about living every breath as though it’s your last.
Academy Award®-nominee Andrew Garfield (Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role, Hacksaw Ridge, 2017; Silence) and Golden Globe® winner Claire Foy (“The Crown”, “Wolf Hall”) star alongside a stellar British cast, including BAFTA®-winner Tom Hollander (Best Supporting Actor, “The Night Manager”, 2017), Golden Globe® nominee Hugh Bonneville (Best Performance by an Actor in a Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television, “Downton Abbey”, 2012; Paddington) and BAFTA®-winner Stephen Mangan (Rush, TV’s “Episodes”).
Adventurous and charismatic, Robin Cavendish (Garfield) has his whole life ahead of him when he is paralysed by polio whilst in Africa in 1958. Contrary to all advice, Robin’s wife Diana (Claire Foy) brings him home from hospital where her devotion and witty determination transcends his disability. Together they refuse to be imprisoned by his suffering, dazzling others with their humour, courage and lust for life.
