Worth Watching - Feb 3: Daryl Wein's Breaking Upwards Trailer
by Alex Billington
February 3, 2009
Breaking Upwards is a quirky little romantic comedy about a young New York couple that intricately strategizes their own break up. It looks fun and very entertaining, to say the least, and stars the same guy that wrote and directed it. The film will be showing at SXSW in March, so I'm happy to feature this trailer today (via SlashFilm) well before its world premiere. In addition to Daryl Wein and Zoe Lister Jones, the film also stars Peter Friedman and Olivia Thirlby. It's definitely on my list of films to see at SXSW this year. Let us know if you think it looks good too and look for our review and coverage in March.
Watch the trailer for Breaking Upwards:
Breaking Upwards is about a young New York couple who, after four years together and desperate to escape their ennui, but fearful of life apart, decide to intricately strategize their own break up.
Breaking Upwards is directed by actor and filmmaker Daryl Wein, who previously only directed the documentary Sex Positive. The screenplay was written by Wein, fellow lead actress Zoe Lister Jones, and Peter Duchan. The film is premiering at the SXSW Film Festival in March where it will be looking for a distributor. Stay tuned for more details on Breaking Upwards later in 2009!
