The Breaker Upperers

  • Girls School Cinema 2 Wellington Street East Perth, WA, 6004 Australia (map)

Fifteen years ago, Mel and Jen 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.

This hilarious comedy is in the tradition of Flight of the Conchords, What We Do In The Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople and stars Aussie Celia Pacquola (FRINGE WORLD, Rosehaven) and is produced by Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok, Wellington Paranormal)
