IndieWire - Eric Kohn
It’s a gorgeous, romantic drama that earns its emotional resonance without venturing beyond the most familiar beats.
Empire - Helen O'Hara
There's a hint of comforting, chocolate-box, Sunday-night TV here, but it's delivered via such quietly powerful performances and with such hope that it's hard to resist.
50 - Brian Tallerico
The performances and the inherent power of the true story keep it from being a complete disaster, but one hopes Serkis moves on to more challenging material with his follow-up.
Screen International - Wendy Ide
The lack of emotional distance between the filmmakers and the subject – producer Jonathan Cavendish is the son of Robin and Diana – might account for the bracingly celebratory approach. This is understandable, perhaps, but it results in a lack of dramatic light and shade, and an absence of texture in the characterisation.
Variety - Guy Lodge
This earnestly romantic biopic of odds-beating polio patient Robin Cavendish and his unwavering wife, Diana, keeps its eyes moist and its upper lip stiff to the last β€” but its sweeping inspirational gestures rarely reach all the way to the heart.

Breathe (2017)

Based on the true story of Robin, a handsome, brilliant and adventurous man whose life takes a dramatic turn when polio leaves him paralyzed.
