Netflix has released the trailer for a new comedy film from New Zealand “The Breaker Upperers”, which arrives on February 15th. The film, from the producers of “Hunt for The Wilderpeople”, follows two friends Mel and Jen who set up a company to make it easy for spineless people to break up with their partners.
Fifteen years ago, Mel (Madeleine Sami) and Jen (Jackie van Beek) discovered they were being two-timed by the same man. Bitter and cynical they became fast friends and formed The Breaker Upperers, a small-time business breaking up couples for cash. Now they’re in their late-thirties and business is booming. They’re a platonic, codependent couple who keep their cynicism alive by not getting emotionally involved with anybody else. But when they run into an old victim, Mel develops a conscience and their friendship is truly put to the test.
