Curious to know more? Let us help you with that. We have information on the plot, cast, release date, and trailer for The Breaker Upperers.

The Breaker Upperers is a New Zealand Rom-Com that was created by Madeleine Sami and Jackie van Beek.

The pair not only wrote the film but also directed and starred in their own cynical Rom-Com. While the film has already been out in New Zealand and Australia for almost a year, it didn’t receive an international release until Netflix came along. The film debuted in cinemas in March of 2018 and brought in over $3 Million (NZ) at the box office. The Breaker Upperers is also the first New Zealand Netflix Film to arrive on the streaming service.
