New Zealand’s Madeleine Sami and Jackie Van Beek mischievously turn the romantic comedy genre upside down with their film The Breaker Upperers, which focuses on an actual “breaking-up agency”.
In other words, if you’re too scared to initiate break-up with a significant other, there are “guns for hire” in this movie that will facilitate a break-up on your behalf. The concept itself has loads of potential for devilish fun and the trailer definitely delivers on that.
Just so you know, The Breaker Upperers has Taika Waititi, director of Thor: Ragnarok and America’s current favorite New Zealand export, attached and just played by SXSW. We can only hope that means that it will find its way into theaters across North America soon.
