- Directed by: Andy Serkis
- Cast: Andrew Garfield, Claire Foy, Diana Rigg
Dashing young Robin (Garfield) marries lovely young Diana (Foy) and they set off for Nairobi, where Robin rather inconveniently contracts polio which paralyses him from the neck down and forces him to rely on a respirator. Serkis’s directorial debut is an unashamed tearjerker, undoubtedly heavy-handed but redeemed by Foy’s sensible presence and Garfield’s decency.
Andy Serkis steps out of the motion capture suit and behind the camera for this true-life drama about Robin Cavendish (Andrew Garfield) and his unwavering wife, Diana (Claire Foy) as they face the odds in his fight against polio.
A spirited tea broker is suddenly and irreversibly paralysed with polio aged 28. Despite being confined to a bed, he devotes the rest of his life to help fellow patients and the disabled. A great central performance by Garfield may put him on the same wave that swept Eddie Redmayne to the Oscars for The Theory Of Everything.
The screenings on Saturday 28th October at 6.35 ">Subtitled Screenings Facebook Group.
