Have you ever just wanted to walk away from it all? And how would your friends and family cope in your absence if you did? Those questions and more are asked in Wakefield starring Bryan Cranston as he gets broody in his attic and ahead of it’s UK Premiere at this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival, we get the movies UK trailer…
Whilst things on paper make look hunky dory but deep down it’s hard to judge or spot the warning signs, sometimes life can get to you, you burn out. No shame in admitting to struggling with daily life and in Robin Swicord‘s indie drama Bryan Cranston breaks down but why hide and observe your own family?
Successful suburbanite Howard Wakefield (Bryan Cranston; Breaking Bad, Trumbo) takes a surprising detour from family life when it all starts to get too much: He vanishes without a trace. Hidden in the attic of his carriage house garage, surviving by scavenging at night, Howard secretly observes the lives of his wife, his children and his neighbours as they learn to live with his unexplained disappearance. But has he left his family, or has he left himself?
Wakefield is set for a premiere at Edinburgh Film Festival on 30th June, then next month Signature Entertainment will release the movie. First on 28th July as a digital download then 31st July on DVD. The movie also stars Jennifer Garner, Jason O’Mara, Beverly D’Angelo and Ian Anthony Dale.
