Breaking Upwards

In a fresh modern spin on Woody Allen's Annie Hall, director Daryl Wein depicts two witty, real New Yorkers - but instead of falling in love, they're trying to fall out of it. Breaking Upwards explores a young, real-life New York couple who, four years in and battling codependency, decide to intricately strategize their own break up. Based on an actual experiment devised by director/actor Daryl Wein and actress Zoe Lister-Jones, the film loosely interprets a year in their lives exploring alternatives to monogamy, and the madness that ensues.

Like Allen's best work, this is also bursting with a brilliant cast including Emmy and Tony winner Andrea Martin(SCTV, My Big Fat Greek Wedding); Tony Winner Julie White (Transformers, Monsters Vs. Aliens); Olivia Thilrby (Juno, The Wackness), Zoe Lister-Jones (Arranged, The Other Guys); and Tony nominee Pablo Schreiber (Vicky Cristina Barcelona, TV's The Wire). An uncensored look at young love, lust, and the pangs of codependency, Breaking Upwards follows its characters as they navigate each others' emotions across the city they love. It begs the question: is it ever possible to grow apart together?
