The first UK trailer for Like Crazy writer/director Drake Doremus’ new film Breathe In has been released online. The film stars Guy Pearce as a former rock musician and current music teacher whose life begins to unravel when he develops an attraction towards a young foreign exchange student (Felicity Jones) that is staying with his family for her final semester. The pic was one of my favorites of this year’s Sundance Film Festival (read my full review here), and it boasts some absolutely devastating performances from the entire cast, including Amy Ryan as Pearce’s wife. Doremus tackles the family drama genre with a powerful intimacy that makes the story’s events that much more impactful, and the always-reliable Pearce truly shines in the lead role. Don’t miss this one, folks.
