BREAKING AND ENTERING is interesting character-driven drama. Jude Law (CLOSER FINAL CUT) plays Will a landscape architect who succeeds in business but finds his personal life is tougher to navigate. He has been with Liv (Robin Wright Penn FORREST GUMP THE PLEDGE) for years but its difficult to connect with her due to her worry over her teenage daughter. When Will catches teenager Miro breaking into his office he chases the thief home. He later meets the boys mother a Bosnian refugee played by Juliette Binoche (CHOCOLAT THE ENGLISH PATIENT). His anger at Miro is quickly transformed into attraction to his mother further complicating his relationship with Liv. br/ br/ This is Laws third teaming with director Anthony Minghella (after THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY and COLD MOUNTAIN) and their partnership rewards the audience with a typically good performance from the actor. Wright Penn and Binoche also display the talent people have come to expect but its the supporting cast that shines here. As Wills business partner Sandy Martin Freeman plays second fiddle to Law but he possesses a similar charm as his character on THE OFFICE. As a persistent prostitute Vera Farmiga (THE DEPARTED) is one of the movies highlights providing laughter in what is largely a very bleak film. Gavron is a capable young actor as Miro but his performance is most astonishing for his skills at the sport of parkour a kind of urban acrobatics on display throughout the film. If only these characters were half as adept at life and relationships as Gavron is at leaping from building to building...
