Breaking and Entering (2006)
Friday 9th February 2007
From acclaimed Academy Award® winning director Anthony Minghella (Cold Mountain, The Talented Mr Ripley, The English Patient) comes Breaking and Entering - a complex tale of desire and deceit, released by Buena Vista Home Entertainment from 2nd April 2007.
With a stellar cast including Academy Award® Nominee Jude Law (Cold Mountain), Academy Award® Winner Juliette Binoche (The English Patient) and Robin Wright Penn, the film follows a multi-layered and provocative love story set against a ragged and bewildering London. Reuniting Mingella and Law, who collaborated with explosive results in The Talented Mr Ripley, Breaking and Entering features some of the UK's finest talent and is a must for fans of British film. Set against the gritty backdrop of London's King's Cross, Law is joined by a first-class British cast including Martin Freeman and Ray Winstone. The drama follows trendy architect Will as he juggles failing relationships with his Swedish partner Liv and troubled daughter Bea alongside a passionate affair with Bosnian refugee Amira. Intelligent, challenging and thought-provoking, Minghella beautifully captures the emotional and political fallout as the worlds of privilege and poverty collide.
This film will enthral and move you from start to finish with the perfect combination of emotion, drama, passion, wit and social conscience. As well as being released on standard, Breaking and Entering will also be one of the first new films released simultaneously on the revolutionary Blu-ray format, boasting state of the art high definition picture quality. Synopsis Trendy architect Will (Law) and his business partner Sandy (Freeman) have recently acquired new office premises in King's Cross. Unfortunately their state-of-the-art studio is targeted by a local gang of thieves. Fed up after yet another break-in, Will stakes the office out and chases one of the young gang members, Miro (Gavron) back to the tiny flat where he lives with his mother Amira (Binoche), a Bosnian refugee who works as a tailor.
Will befriends Amira, hoping to investigate the burglary, but, in the light of his complicated home life, finds himself increasingly drawn to her. Will lives with his half-Swedish girlfriend, Liv (Wright Penn), who spends most of her time worrying about her troubled daughter Bea (Roger), leaving her little energy to spare for Will. When Amira realises that Miro robbed Will, she is prepared to do anything to protect her son.
