Following the footsteps of Amma Asante last year and Sarah Gavron in 2015, Andy Serkis is all set to open the London Film Festival with his directorial debut movie ‘Breathe’. Serkis will provide the curtain raiser for the 61st edition of the event with his movie, starring Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy.
The movie is based on the true story of British advocate for the disabled Robin Cavendish. The story follows the life of Cavendish, who was paralysed with polio at the age of 28 and was given just three months to live. Against all advice, his wife Diane brought him home from hospital and inspired him to lead a long and fulfilled life. Cavendish died in 1994 at the age of 64.
