Breath

Based on the award-winning international best-selling novel by Tim Winton, BREATH, Simon Baker’s directorial debut, follows two teenage boys, Pikelet and Loonie (newcomers Samson Coulter and Ben Spence in breakthrough performances) who are growing up in a remote corner of the Western Australian coast. Hungry for experience, the pair forms an unlikely friendship with Sando (Simon Baker) a mysterious older surfer and adventurer who pushes the boys to take risks that will have a lasting and profound impact on their lives. Also starring Elizabeth Debicki and Richard Roxburgh, BREATH is an authentic coming-of-age drama in an idyllic 1970s setting.
