Directors: Madeleine Sami, Jackie van Beek
15 years ago, Jen and Mel discovered that they were being two-timed by the same man. From heartbreak, a friendship blossomed, alongside a hearty cynicism about love and relationships. And so The Breaker Upperers was born, a business helping people who lack the courage to end their relationships. Faking deaths, impersonating cops and strippers, and feigning pregnancies are all part of their extensive repertoire. But when consciences resurface and the prospect of romance rears up, the unbreakable friendship between the two starts to show its first cracks.
“I think The Breaker Upperers is the funniest and most likeable film I’ve seen this year. Go see it.” Graeme Tuckett Stuff.co.nz
“A riotous crowd pleaser driven by the energy of its utterly affable creators”
