A foreign exchange student quickens the breath of a middle-aged aspiring musician: Review of "Breathe In"

Writer-director Drake Doremus’s new meditation on marital infidelity, “Breathe In”, is a puzzling combination of emotional resonance and frustratingly lazy, on-the-nose directing. When it works, it’s usually thanks to the strong performances of its leads, eighteen-year-old British exchange student Sophie (Felicity Jones, playing a character ten years younger than herself) and the dissatisfied high school music teacher, Keith (Guy Pearce), whose family hosts her in upstate New York. 657 more words

Breathe In

directed by Drake Doremus, 2013
