Academy Award-winner Anthony Minghella (COLD MOUNTAIN, THE ENGLISH PATIENT), returns to his contemporary roots and directs his first original screenplay since TRULY MADLY DEEPLY. In this intimate relationship drama, set in multi-cultural London Minghella unites an award-winning cast, many of whom have shone in his previous films. BREAKING AND ENTERING stars Jude Law (THE TALENTED MR RIPLEY), Juliette Binoche (THE ENGLISH PATIENT), Robin Wright Penn (FORREST GUMP), Vera Farmiga (THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE), Ray Winstone (COLD MOUNTAIN), Martin Freeman (THE HITCHHIKERS GUIDE TO THE GALAXY) and Juliet Stevenson (TRULY MADLY DEEPLY).

BREAKING AND ENTERING tells the story of a series of criminal and emotional thefts, set against the backdrop of London's changing culture and geography. Will (Jude Law) and his friend Sandy (Martin Freeman) run a flourishing landscape architecture firm that recently relocated to King's Cross, the center of Europe's most ambitious urban regeneration site. Their state-of-the-art studio office repeatedly attracts the attention of a local gang of thieves and Will, fed up after another break-in, chases one of the young gang members, Miro (Rafi Gavron), back to the apartment he shares with his mother Amira (Juliette Binoche), a Bosnian refugee. At home, Will lives with his beautiful girlfriend Liv (Robin Wright Penn) who spends most of her time worrying about her troubled 13 year-old daughter Bea (Poppy Roger).

Will befriends Amira to further investigate the burglary, but their friendship takes an unexpected turn. Amira soon discovers that Miro robbed Will's office and becomes suspicious of his true intentions in their relationship. In a state of fear, she sets out to blackmail Will in order to protect her son. With his life already in crisis, Will embarks on a passionate journey into the wilder side of both himself and the city.

Filmed on location in London and at Elstree Studios during the summer of 2005, the film is a co-production between Miramax Films and The Weinstein Company and is produced by Anthony Minghella, Sydney Pollack and Timothy Bricknell. Production design is by Alex McDowell (FIGHT CLUB, MINORITY REPORT), cinematography by Benoit Delhomme (THE SCENT OF GREEN PAPAYA, MERCHANT OF VENICE, CYCLO) with music composed by Gabriel Yared (THE ENGLISH PATIENT, THE TALENTED MR RIPLEY, COLD MOUNTAIN) and Rick Smith and Karl Hynde of the group Underworld.
