Is Wakefield on Netflix United States?

Sorry, Wakefield is not yet available on Netflix.

A man's nervous breakdown causes him to leave his wife and live in his attic for several months. What would your life look like without you in it? Outwardly, Howard Wakefield (Bryan Cranston) is the picture of success. He has a loving wife (Jennifer Garner) and two daughters, a prestigious job as a Manhattan lawyer, and a comfortable home in the suburbs. Inwardly, though, he's suffocating. One day, something snaps and Howard goes into hiding in his garage attic. Leaving his family to wonder what happened to him, he observes them from the attic window—an outsider spying in on his own life. As the days of self-imposed isolation stretch into months, Howard begins to wonder: is it even possible to go back to the way things were? Driven by a tour de force, darkly comic performance from Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, Wakefield is a provocative look at what it means to walk away from it all.
