Video: Manhattan lawyer Bryan Cranston leaves his wife Jennifer Garner and perfect life behind in dark comedy ‘Wakefield’. Hides in his own Attic and potentially smokes meth!
Directed by Robin Swicord and based on the E.L. Doctorow short story of the same name, Wakefield begins with Cranston’s title character bristling at his too-perfect suburban life. “So much is the same, week after week,” he says in the trailer. “Who hasn’t had the impulse to put their life on hold for a moment?” One night Wakefield does just that, hiding out in his own garage attic while spying on his wife and kids, and he gradually grows more erratic, even feral. It could make for an awkward reunion — if he ever returns to reality.
