A raft of British acting talent - Andrew Garfield, Claire Foy, Tom Hollander, Hugh Bonneville, Stephen Mangum, the late Diana Rigg, and Andy Serkis on directing duties - breathe life into an inspiring, and genuinely eye-opening story of survival against the odds. And Serkis and British screenwriter William Nicholson tell it with warmth and wit.





After being diagnosed with polio at the age of 28, Robin Cavendish (Andrew Garfield) is confined to his bed and consigned to a short life. But with the determination of his wife Diana (Claire Foy) and the pioneering ideas of inventor Teddy Hall (Hugh Bonneville), Cavendish leaves the hospital intending to lead a full life and watch his son grow up.
