"This is the type of rare romantic film that avoids the Hollywood clichés and delves deep into the psychology of break ups while perfectly balancing both a male and female perspective."—Chris Gore, Film Threat

Based on the filmmakers’ actual experience, and starring the filmmakers themselves, “Breaking Upwards” explores a young, real life New York couple who, fours 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?

Starring Daryl Wein (“The Hebrew Hammer”) & Zoe Lister-Jones (Upcoming films include: “Salt,” with Angelina Jolie, “All Good Things”, with Ryan Gosling “The Other Guys” with Will Ferrell).

Co-starring: Olivia Thirlby (“Juno,” “The Wackness”), Julie White (“Transformers,” “Transformers 2”), Andrea Martin (“My Big Fat Greek Wedding”), Peter Friedman (“The Savages”), Ebon Moss-Bachrach (“The Lake House”), La Chanze (“The Color Purple”) and Pablo Schreiber (“The Wire,” “Vicky Cristina Barcelona”)

Directed by Daryl Wein
Written by Daryl Wein, Zoe Lister-Jones and Peter Duchan
