In Breaking, based on a true life story, John Boyega plays an army vet who takes a bank hostage after being denied the support he was promised.
The official synopsis reads:
After his disability check is withheld by Veterans Affairs, veteran Brian Brown-Easley finds himself on the brink of homelessness. With no other options, he walks into a Wells Fargo bank and claims to have a bomb.
Judging from the trailer, John Boyega looks well-positioned for the next award season. If the full movie is anything like the performance glimpsed in the trailer, breaking will be heightened and filled with memorable performances.
Thankfully, we don’t have to wait for too long to see it for ourselves.
Breaking premieres in theatres starting 26 August 2022.
