'I never left my family, I left myself.'

Wakefield is one of the biggest surprises of the year for me, it was like watching a novel. I expected a magnified Wall Street struggle with the dark comedy genre labelled across it, which is often treacherous waters. Instead, I was given an incredible almost one-man show that deals with a nervous breakdown and allows Cranston to deliver his best performance since Breaking Bad and Trumbo as the distant, deprived and sometimes disgusting human that is Howard Wakefield.
