A Kiwi comedy duo is taking the US by storm. It wasn’t until filmmakers and actors Jackie van Beek and Madeleine Sami pulled up to Austin’s Alamo Lamar cinema that the Kiwi film-makers realised the world premiere of their film The Breaker Upperers was a sell-out.
It’s great to see a film enjoyed across the world with Kiwis just being themselves and let’s be honest, most New Zealanders are hilarious!
Breaking up just got easier. Two best friends run a business breaking up couples for cash but when one develops a conscience their friendship unravels. World Premiere at SXSW. Coming to New Zealand cinemas May 3. Taika Waititi presents The Breaker Upperers. Written & Directed by Jackie van Beek & Madeleine Sami. From the producers of Hunt for the Wilderpeople & Boy.
