“Breathe” also co-stars Tom Hollander and Hugh Bonneville, and will be out October 13. Check out the trailer above.
Handsome, adventurous and brilliant, Robin (Andrew Garfield) has his whole life ahead of him when he is paralysed by polio.

A love story about living every breath as though it’s your last.
