IFC Films has released a new trailer for Wakefield, an upcoming drama starring Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad, Godzilla) as a man with a successful career and a loving family who one day decides to disappear from it all.

The movie is written and directed by Robin Swicord, who previously helmed 2007’s The Jane Austen Book Club and also worked on the screenplays for Little Women (1994), Matilda, Practical Magic, Memoirs of a Geisha, and this week’s The Promise, as well as the story for David Fincher’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. It also stars Jennifer Garner, Jason O’Mara, and Beverly D’Angelo.

You can find a synopsis and the trailer for Wakefield below.


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.

Wakefield is set to be released in limited theaters on May 19th, followed by a release on video on demand services on May 26th.

Cranston was recently seen playing Zordon in the new Power Rangers movie, and has the Amazon anthology series Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams among his upcoming projects.
