THE BREAKER UPPERERS
In this side-splittingly funny film, NZ directors Jackie van Beek and Madeleine Sami star as best friends who run an unconventional business breaking up couples for cash.
Fifteen years ago, Mel (Madeleine Sami) and Jen (Jackie van Beek) discovered they were being two-timed by the same man. Bitter and cynical they became fast friends and formed The Breaker Upperers, a small-time business breaking up couples for cash. Now they’re in their late-thirties and business is booming. They’re a platonic, codependent couple who keep their cynicism alive by not getting emotionally involved with anybody else. But when they run into an old victim, Mel develops a conscience and their friendship is truly put to the test.
Featuring Helpmann Award-winning comedian Celia Pacquola, this joyous and hilarious film from Taika Waititi (Boy, Hunt for the Wilderpeople) is a must-see with your friends. A sell-out film of the Sydney Film Festival, don’t miss it on Riverside’s big screen.
