The Breaker Upperers

Official Selection: SXSW

Ever found it hard to split up with somebody? Then Jen and Mel (Jackie Van Beek and Madeleine Sami, who also wrote and directed the film) are here to help, they are The Breaker Upperers and, for a fee, the nihilistic duo will do whatever it takes to help you end your relationship, leading to some beautifully realised scenes. 

But what happens when cynicism ends and romance may have an opportunity? A laugh out-loud comedy, The Breaker Upperersis a comedy about friendships, love, sex, sexuality, and breaking up. 

“It’s a terrific showcase for the duo and their entire cast.” – Variety 

“I think The Breaker Upperers is the funniest and most likeable film I've seen this year. Go see it.” – 

Jackie Van Beek and Madeleine Sami will be attending the screening of The Breaker Upperers on 16 July
