Bryan Cranston Leaves His Life Behind to Live in an Attic in the IFC Drama ‘Wakefield’

IFC Films

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.

One day, something snaps and Howard goes into hiding in his garage attic. Leaving his family to wonder what happened to him, he 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’sBryan Cranston, Wakefield is a provocative look at what it means to walk away from it all.

Check out the trailer below as he goes from business man to hobo attic dweller. ‘Wakefield’ will be in theaters May 19th and on VOD May 26th.
