Audience Reviews for Breathe

  • Dec 27, 2017
    This is another great performance from Andrew Garfield in what is a touching and heartfelt story about overcoming serious illness. As this is a real-life story it is even more poignant, especially seeing the strength of character shine through that also led to a medical innovation now common all over the world. Highly recommended.
