BREATHE (2017) Movie Trailer: Paralyzed Andrew Garfield Retakes Control of His Life

Breathe Trailer 1

The first movie trailer for Breathe (2017) from Imaginarium Productions. Our first look at Andy Serkis’ official foray into directing, the trailer appears promising enough. A story of young love blighted by the succumbing of one of the lovers to disability against a period English setting, it’s hard to not think of The Theory of Everything. Not only that, but the movie is also based on a true story, cementing the similarities between Breathe and the James Marsh film.

By showing us the early phases of Robin (Andrew Garfield) and Diana Cavendish’s (Claire Foy) relationship, the trailer gives us time to build empathy for the characters so that when Robin is afflicted by polio and left paralyzed we definitely feel it. However, the rest of the trailer seems to pit him against the medical authorities who doubt that he will ever be able to live outside of institutional care again, with one doctor commenting that no one with his condition has ever lived outside of a hospital.

Interestingly, the trailer makes heavy use of voiceover, seeming to place higher emphasis on showcasing the film’s gorgeous costumes and scenery instead of simply showing characters talking back and forth with each other.

Andy Serkis‘s Breathe (2017) also stars Diana Rigg, Miranda Raison, Dean-Charles Chapman, Hugh Bonneville Kiera Bell, Camilla Rutherford, Ed Speelers, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Emily Bevan, Roger Ashton-Griffiths, James Wilby, Amit Shah, and Honey Holmes.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
