Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy star in film based on a true story at Fisher Theatre
Sedona AZ (December 8, 2017) – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of the inspiring true love story “Breathe” showing Dec. 15-20 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
For his directorial debut, renowned actor Andy Serkis brings to life the inspiring true love story between Robin and Diana Cavendish (Academy Award-nominee Andrew Garfield and Golden Globe-winner Claire Foy), an adventurous couple who refuse to give up in the face of a devastating disease.
After a fairytale-like courtship, Robin is struck down by polio at the age of 28, confined to a hospital bed and given only a few months to live. With the help of Diana’s twin brothers (Tom Hollander) and the groundbreaking ideas of inventor Teddy Hall (Hugh Bonneville), Robin and Diana dare to escape the hospital ward to seek out a full and passionate life together — raising their young son, traveling and devoting their lives to helping other polio patients.
Written by two-time Academy Award nominated writer William Nicholson, and shot by three-time Academy Award winner Robert Richardson, “Breathe” is a heartwarming celebration of love and human possibility.
