What would your life look like without you in it? Outwardly, Howard Wakefield (Bryan Cranston) is the picture of success. He has a loving wife (Jennifer Garner) and two daughters, a prestigious job as a Manhattan lawyer and a comfortable home in the suburbs. Inwardly, though, he’s suffocating—bored with routine, obsessed with obligations and jealousies. One day, something snaps and Howard goes into hiding in his garage attic. Leaving his family to wonder what happened to him, he compulsively observes them from the attic window—an outsider spying in on his own life. As the days of self-imposed isolation stretch into months, Howard begins to wonder: is it even possible to go back to the way things were? Driven by a tour de force, darkly comic performance from “Breaking Bad’s Cranston (an Oscar nominee for Trumbo), Wakefield is a perverse and provocative look at what it means to walk away from it all. Written and directed by Robin Swicord (writer/director of The Jane Austen Book Club, Oscar-nominated writer of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), adapted from a story by E. L. Doctorow.
