Breathe is about the true story of Robin Cavendish who contracted polio at the age of 28 After contracting polio at the age of 28. He is is confined to a bed and given only months to live. With help from his family and inventor Teddy Hall, Cavendish devotes the rest of his life to help fellow patients and the disabled.
Cavendish is played by Andrew Garfield, his wife is played by Claire Foy with Hugh Bonneville as Teddy Hall. The trailer for Breathe looks very similar to the 2014 film The Theory of Everything. Both true stories of men overcoming debilitating illness.
Garfield is clearly going for another Best Actor nomination. The trailer is a bit heavy handed and as Oscar baity as they come.
