Breaking Upwards

The movie “Breaking Upwards” follows a young New York couple who, after four years together, have grown stifled. Desperate to escape their ennui, but fearful of life apart, they decide to intricately strategize their own break up. The film blurs the line between documentary and narrative by casting real life couple (and filmmakers) Daryl Wein and Zoe Lister-Jones as themselves. 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?
