I’ve just spotted this teaser poster of Breathe, the upcoming drama movie directed by Andy Serkis based on a script by William Nicholson and starring Andrew Garfield, Claire Foy, Hugh Bonneville, Tom Hollander, Ed Speelers, Miranda Raison, Dean-Charles Chapman, and Roger Ashton-Griffiths:
An inspirational love story.
“From twice Academy Award nominated writer William Nicholson (Everest, Unbroken, Les Misérables and Gladiator), Breathe is an inspirational true story of love without limits.
Handsome, adventurous and brilliant, Robin (Andrew Garfield), has his whole life ahead of him when he is paralyzed by Polio.
Against all advice, Robin’s beautiful wife Diana (Claire 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 humor, 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.”

What is polio?
A really nasty disease! We can be glad there’s a vaccine against it nowadays.
The film has yet to get an official release date, most likely sometime in 2017.
