“Breathe,” the directorial debut of actor Andy Serkis (“War for the Planet of the Apes”), has been chosen as the Sunday Centerpiece at the 25th Hamptons International Film Festival which will take place from Oct. 5 to Oct. 9.
Serkis’ film stars Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy as a real-life couple who attempt to continue living an adventurous life together after the husband is diagnosed with polio.
Other films that were announced for this year’s lineup include “After Louie,” starring Alan Cumming as an New York City artist during the AIDS epidemic, and the Iraq War drama “The Yellow Birds” featuring Toni Collette and Jennifer Aniston. Both Cumming and Collette are scheduled to attend the film fest.
