Based on the lives of producer Jonathan Cavendish’s parents, Andy Serkis’ impressive directorial debut tells a remarkable tale of strength and hope.
While working in Africa, Robin Cavendish (Andrew Garfield) is struck down by polio. His wife Diana (Claire Foy) is unwilling to accept doctor’s prognosis and flies him back to England, where he undergoes radical and innovative treatment.
Serkis eschews sentimentality in favour of stark honesty.
