From producer Taikia Watiti comes The Breaker Upperers, a comedy about two cynical women (writers/directors Jackie van Beek and Madeleine Sami) who set up a business where they break up with people for their partners who don’t have the guts to do it themselves, as a way to avoid letting go and moving on with their lives.
Everything about this idea is great, unfortunately, the trailer doesn’t offer any particularly funny or exciting. But hey, it’s only the first trailer. Taika Watiti hasn’t let us down before, so hopefully we have another great film incoming.
The Breaker Upperers makes it’s US festival debut in March.
