A year after its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, Indiewire is pleased to world premiere the US trailer and poster for Drake Doremus’ acclaimed follow-up to “Like Crazy,” “Breathe In.” The drama reunites Doremus, winner of the 2011 Sundance Grand Jury Prize for “Like Crazy,” with his breakout star of that film, Felicity Jones.
Here’s the official synopsis per Cohen Media Group:
“Breathe In” pairs writer/director Drake Doremus once again with his incandescent “Like Crazy” star, Felicity Jones. Soulful and musical British exchange
student Sophie Williams (Jones) comes to New York in search of
inspiration. On the surface, Sophie’s host family seems happy enough,
but with her arrival to the Reynolds’ Upstate New York home, the private
struggles of each family member begin to bubble. In particular,
frustrated musician-turned-piano- teacher Keith Reynolds (Guy Pearce)
finds long suppressed dreams and desires reignited by Sophie’s talent
and inquisitive nature. While Keith’s wife, Megan (Amy Ryan) and
daughter, Lauren (breakout talent, Mackenzie Davis) focus on Lauren’s
final year of high school, Sophie and Keith are drawn ever closer by
their mutual longing for creative expression. Ultimately, Sophie and
Keith must confront how much they are willing to sacrifice and what they
truly want out of life.
The film opens March 28. Watch the trailer and view the poster below.
