First-look photo of Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy in Breathe


Story by Jack Foley

A FIRST-look photo has just been released of Golden Globe winner Claire Foy and Academy Award nominee Andrew Garfield in Breathe.

A release date for the film has also been set for October 27, 2017, by distributor STXinternational.

Andy Serkis’s (Jungle Book, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) feature directorial debut, Breathe, was written by twice Academy Award-nominated writer William Nicholson (Everest, Les Misérables and Gladiator), and is described as an inspirational true story of love without limits.

Handsome, adventurous and brilliant, Robin (Garfield) has his whole life ahead of him when he is paralysed by polio. Against all advice, Robin’s beautiful wife Diana (Foy) brings him home; where her devotion, intimacy and witty determination transcends his disability and sets him free.

Together they refuse to be imprisoned by his suffering; transforming the lives of others with their humour, courage and lust for life.

Breathe is a heart-warming and highly emotional celebration of bravery and human possibility; where deep friendship is rooted in honesty and seeing the funny side of life. A love story about living every breath as though it’s your last.

Based on the incredible true story of producer Jonathan Cavendish’s own parents, Breathe shows how Robin’s handling of and reaction to his illness, had a huge impact on mobility and access for the disabled.

The film’s supporting cast members include Hugh Bonneville (Paddington and Paddington 2) and Tom Hollander (Jungle Book and The Night Manager) as Robin’s devoted, long-time friends.

The film is produced by Jonathan Cavendish (Bridget Jones’s Diary) for The Imaginarium Studios.

Breathe opens in UK and Irish cinemas nationwide on October 27, 2017.
