Deadline ‘Breathe’ Review

By: Pete Hammond

Andy Serkis might be best known as Caesar in the Planet of the Apes reboot films or Gollum in the Lord of the Rings franchise, but he’s about to surprise the world with his ability behind the scenes in a very different kind of movie.

Serkis makes his directorial debut with Breathe, the true story of Robin Cavendish, who became tethered to a breathing machine in order to stay alive after contracting polio in 1958 at age 28. With his wife Diana driving him to keep a will to live, he went on with his life and family for several decades after first being told he wouldn’t last a year. This is definitely not the kind of material we have associated the clearly multi-talented Serkis with in the past, but he does the Cavendish story proud in a movie that gives us hope for the human spirit, an inspiring and beautiful film that blissfully avoids the clichés of a genre that can get maudlin and sappy very quickly.

As I say in my video review (click the link above to watch), a better comparison for Breathe is 2014’s The Theory of Everything, with Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones as Stephen and Jane Hawkins as they struggle to rise above Hawking’s debilitating condition. That’s what Cavendish does as well with the unstoppable optimism of his wife. As played by Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy, we have another pair of actors in a heart-wrenching drama that deserve strong awards consideration.

Claire Foy Covers the November 2017 Issue of Vogue UK

By: Scarlett Conlon

SHE is set to steal the show alongside Andrew Garfield in the forthcoming Breathe (the cinematic adaptation of the love story of tireless campaigners Robin and Diana Cavendish), but before then Claire Foy – the toast of the British acting scene thanks to her Golden Globe-winning turn as Queen Elizabeth in The Crown – takes to the cover of the November issue of British Vogue.

Making her debut fronting the fashion bible, Foy is resplendent in a floor-sweeping Christian Siriano gown, hailing “the return of glamour”. Styled by senior contributing fashion editor Kate Phelan and photographed by Craig McDean, the 33-year-old is interviewed by Chloe Fox for the accompanying interview in which she sheds light on finding global recognition at the right time in her life: “If this had happened to me when I was 23, I probably would have spun into a vortex,” she reveals.

The search for the new Lisbeth Salander is over. “The Crown” breakout Claire Foy has officially been chosen to step into the role of Stieg Larsson iconic computer hacker for the upcoming “The Girl in the Spider’s Web” adaptation. The character has been played on the big screen by both Noomi Rapace and Rooney Mara in the past. Fede Alvarez, best known for horror films “Evil Dead” and “Don’t Breathe,” is directing.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled about Claire taking the reins of the iconic Lisbeth Salander,” Alvarez said in an official statement. “Claire is an incredible, rare talent who will inject a new and exciting life into Lisbeth. I can’t wait to bring this new story to a worldwide audience, with Claire Foy at its center.”

Foy is having a breakout year. Her role in Netflix’s “The Crown” landed her an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, and she’s also the lead opposite Andrew Garfield in Andy Serkis’ directorial debut “Breathe,” in theaters this October. Foy’s role as Elizabeth II in “The Crown” has already won her ta Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award.

Sony Pictures will release “The Girl in the Spider’s Web” in theaters October 19, 2018.
