Trailer Watch: Female Friendship is the Be All and Especially the End All in Melanie Laurent’s ‘Breathe’

Trailer Watch: Female Friendship is the Be All and Especially the End All in Melanie Laurent's 'Breathe'

French actress Melanie Laurent ("Inglourious Basterds," "Beginners") has earned glowing reviews for her female-friendship drama "Breathe," which marks her second time behind the camera. 

Charlie’s (Josephine Japy) life as a small-town high-schooler quickly transforms when new girl Sarah (Lou De Laage) arrives from Nigeria. The two girls quickly become inseparable, but, of course, boys, parents, and alcohol can strain the strongest friendships.

The trailer is a visceral ride, replicating how claustrophobic and panicked Charlie feels when her bond with Sarah finally breaks. 

"Breathe" will be released by Film Movement, which has yet to set a release date for the French-language film.
