Well-made and life-affirming
Breathing is the most natural thing on earth, right? But when British tea broker Robin Cavendish contracted polio in Kenya in 1958, he found that he was paralysed from the neck down and could not breathe without the constant support of a mechanical ventilator. This true story is told with Andrew Garfield as Robin and Claire Foy as his wife Diana, both of whom give fine performances of nuanced emotion.
Inevitably the film will be compared with “The Theory Of Everything” but it is no bad thing to be reminded that people with disabilities can achieve remarkable things. In Stephen Hawking’s case, he was still able to make great contributions to theoretical physics; in the instance of Robin Cavendish, he transformed the treatment of those with paralysis, both in the UK and much wider.
For first time director Andy Serkis, this is clearly a very personal project. His professional partner and producer on the film is Jonathan Cavendish, the son of Robin and Diana, while Serkis’s sister has multiple sclerosis. Serkis is known for his acclaimed acting in performance-capture roles, but the only major use of special effects here is to enable Tom Hollander to represent both of Diana’s identical twin brothers.
At the end especially, the heart strings are well and truly plucked, but it is gratifying to see such a well-made and life-affirming work on our screens.
Breathe: a British top-notch Production.
If I may give an advice to you, don’t read anything about this film. Just watch it: the less you know, the more you’ll be wonderfully surprised.
Perhaps all you’d like to know is that it’s a British top-notch production, based on a really interesting (true) story, with a flawless script and an excellent cast. A very entertaining 112 minutes.
And yes: Tom Hollander is playing the Blacker twins. Both of them. And they sing together ‘Goodbye-ee’.
