Tim Winton’s Breath, winner of the Miles Franklin Literary Award, has been adapted to the big screen by Simon Baker in his directorial debut.
When paramedic Bruce Pike is called out to deal with another teenage adventure gone wrong, he knows better than his colleague, better than the kid’s parents, what happened and how. Thirty years before, that dead boy could have been him.
A story about the wildness of youth and learning to live with its passing, Breath will star Simon Baker, the Great Gatsby’s Elizabeth Debicki, and Richard Roxburgh.
Premiering at the Toronto and Zurich film festivals in 2017, Breath will release in Australian cinemas on May 3rd.
