“There have been plenty of good surfing documentaries, but very few good dramas about the sport – a short list on which “Breath” instantly earns a prominent spot.”
– Dennis Harvey, Variety
Based on the award-winning, international best-selling novel by Tim Winton, Simon Baker’s directorial debut BREATH follows two teenage boys, Pikelet and Loonie (newcomers Samson Coulter and Ben Spence in breakthrough performances), growing up in a remote corner of the Western Australian coast.
