The Breaker Upperers

The Breaker Upperers


Sex, coarse language and drug use

Exclusive advanced screening plus a special appearance by the cast of New Zealand's latest hit at Redbank Cinema on Wednesday 18th July at 6.30pm. 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.
