The Breaker Upperers to open 65th Sydney Film Festival

Breaking up just got easier...

Sydney you lucky bastards, get ready to have rock hard abs from laughing so hard, because you’re about to get broken up with.

We are thrilled that the hilarious New Zealand film, THE BREAKER UPPERERS, is set to make its Australian premiere at Sydney Film Festival! For the rest of us plebs, we have to wait until it is released in cinemas on July 26. But check out the trailer below, and get ready for the LOLs.

Two best friends run a business breaking up couples for cash but when one develops a conscience the friendship unravels.

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.
