Tribeca Films is planning a late 2013 theatrical release for Director Felix van Groeningen’s “THE BROKEN CIRCLE BREAKDOWN” which recently played in competition at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, where writers Joos and van Groeningen won Best Screenplay for a Narrative Feature Film and lead actress Veerle Baetens won Best Actress in a Narrative Feature Film. Earlier this year it won the Panorama Audience Award at the 2013 Berlin International Film Festival.
“THE BROKEN CIRCLE BREAKDOWN” is described as an intensely moving portrait of a relationship from beginning to end, propelled by a soundtrack of foot-stomping bluegrass – a romantic melodrama of the highest order.
Elise (Veerle Baetens) and Didier (Johan Heldenbergh) fall in love at first sight. She has her own tattoo shop and he plays the banjo in a bluegrass band. They bond over their shared enthusiasm for American music and culture, and dive headfirst into a sweeping romance that plays out on and off stage — but when an unexpected tragedy hits their new family, everything they know and love is tested.
