BREATHE (2015)

Breathe, Mélanie Laurent’s follow-up feature to The Adopted, is an adaptation of Anne-Sophie Brasme’s novel of the same title. After reading the novel at age seventeen, Laurent knew she wanted to adapt Breathe to the big screen (The Director’s Interview by Film Movement). In the film, Laurent captures the intimate relationship between two seventeen year-old girls from the novel that turns toxic and then some.
