King’s Film Society Presentation

After years of critical success as an actor, Andy Serkis makes his directorial debut with Breathe, the inspiring biopic portrait of Robin Cavendish. After being diagnosed with polio at age 28, Cavendish served as a global advocate for people living with disabilities and assisted in the development of medical technologies that transformed the lives of paralyzed individuals everywhere.

Andrew Garfield stars as Cavendish alongside Claire Foy (The Lady in the Van, Rosewater) as devoted wife Diana Blacker in this heartwarm­ing chronicle of a couple determined to break barriers for families facing physical chal­lenges. Completely paralyzed from the neck down, Cavendish was put on a medical respi­rator but refused to be confined by his hospital bed. Against his doctors’ advice, he and Diana bravely set off on a worldwide quest with their son, Jonathan (Dean-Charles Chapman), to share their story. Not only was Cavendish a miracle of science for being one of the longest living polio survivors, but he was also a pioneer in the medical community for his innovating efforts to enhance mobility for the physically impaired. With the help of his friend, professor, and inventor Teddy Hall (Hugh Bonneville, TV’s Downton Abbey), Cavendish used himself as a guinea pig to test the first wheelchair with a built-in respirator. While he and Diana faced unique pressures in their relationship, their unwavering strength and spirit lies at the heart of this story.
