Breath

Based on the award-winning novel by Tim Winton, BREATH is the feature film directorial debut of actor Simon Baker, and tells the story of two teenage boys in 1970s Western Australia who receive tutelage in the art of surfing from an older man with a mysterious past.

Pikelet (Samson Coulter) and his best friend Loonie (Ben Spence) are growing up in a remote corner of the West Australian coast. Pikelet comes from a stable home, whereas wild child Loonie does everything he can to avoid his violent father. Curious and hungry for discovery, the two teens find themselves enthralled by surfing, and strike up an unlikely friendship with Sando (Baker), a former professional surfer who mentors the boys as they learn how to master the waves. But how has Sando found his way to this isolated town, and what is the story of his surly American partner Eva (Elizabeth Debicki)? As Sando pushes the boys to take bigger and more dangerous risks out in the ocean, the more Pikelet and Loonie come to discover about the joys – and the dangers – of growing up.
