The First Trailer For ‘WAKEFIELD’ Starring Bryan Cranston
Check out the first trailer that IFC Films has released for their dark comic drama WAKEFIELD starring Bryan Cranston, which can be seen down below!
Directed by Robin Swicord and based on the E.L. Doctorow short story of the same name. Howard Wakefield might be the closest kin to the mad-as-hell Beale, who if he hadn’t met his demise on live national TV he might have done what Wakefield does. Based on the Doctorow story, Howard has a loving wife (Jennifer Garner), two daughters, a prestigious job as a Manhattan lawyer, and a comfortable home in the suburbs. But inwardly he’s suffocating, and eventually he snaps and goes into hiding in his garage attic leaving his family to wonder what happened to him. He observes them from his window– an outsider spying in on his own life– as the days of exile stretch into months. Is it possible to go back to the way things were?
Cranston and Garner are joined alongside Jason O’Mara and Beverly D’Angelo.
Wakefield hits theaters on May 19.
Cranston can be seen as the bad guy on Amazon’s Sneaky Pete, which he also executive produces. He’s also set to play Howard Beale in the new play “Network” this fall in the West End.
