In a fresh modern spin on Woody Allen's Annie Hall, director Daryl Wein depicts two witty, charmingly klutsy and real New Yorkers - but instead of falling in love, they're trying to fall out of love. Like Allen's best work, this film 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), and Tony ® nominee Pablo Schreiber (Vicky Cristina Barcelona, TV's the Wire). Daryl and Zoe (played by real-life couple Daryl Wein and Zoe Lister-Jones) still care for each other, but the zip has gone out of their romance. They decide to craft a really good breakup: instead of just saying goodbye - after all, they still like each other - they date four days a week and see other people for the other three days. Simple, right? Not once their mothers and friends and would-be lovers get in on the act. Co-written by Wein and Lister-Jones and based on their real-life experiences, Breaking Upwards is the freshest romance in years.
