Part of the American Dreams Strand


Bryan Cranston is superb as successful lawyer and family man Howard Wakefield who, one evening, follows his odd but overwhelming impulse to walk away from his life. As he stands in his suburban driveway he makes the snap decision to hide away in the attic of his two-car garage and spend his time observing his wife Diana (Jennifer Garner) and his children. Based on a short story by E.L. Doctorow, the film is driven by Cranston’s amazing performance as a cruel, selfish, funny and rather unforgivable - but ultimately absorbing - man. [12A]
