GAL APPROVED! The Heartbreaking Real-Life Tragedy in Breaking. Movie In Theaters TodayBy The DivaGals | August 26, 2022 | Gal Approved
How do you follow up a leading role in the Star Wars saga? For John Boyega, it’s taking the role of real-life Marine veteran Brian Brown-Easley. In 2017, after being denied support from Veterans Affairs, Brown-Easley walked into an Atlanta bank and held several employees hostage, setting the stage for a tense confrontation, and ultimately deadly, with police.
Even with the ending unveiled, Boyega’s performance is nuanced and heartbreaking, making you feel for all sides caught up in these unfortunate circumstances.
Bleeker Street hosted a special LA screening of Breaking at the London West Hollywood. Boyega joined co-stars Connie Britton, Selenis Levya, Nicole Beharie , along with writer Kwame Kwei-Armah and co-writer/director Abi Damaris Corbin for the screening.
Breaking is in theaters today.
