Based on the filmmakers’ actual experience, and starring the filmmakers themselves, “Breaking Upwards” explores a young, real life New York couple who, four years into their relationship and battling codependency, decide to intricately strategize their own break up.
The film loosely interprets a year in their lives exploring alternatives to monogamy and the madness that ensues. It begs the question: is it ever possible to grow apart together?
“The hangdog Wein and particularly the winsome Lister-Jones are appealing enough to make us truly care about whether their characters are able to work it out. But however their true-life relationship progressed, they have something worthy to show for it in this charming effort. “ — Hollywood Reporter
