Olivia Thirlby Rocks The Mic In Support Of BREAKING UPWARDS!

Beaks here...

All praise to /Film's Peter Sciretta for putting SXSW competition selection BREAKING UPWARDS on my radar. The twentysomething romantic comedy stars "real-life couple" Daryl Wein and Zoe Lister-Jones as a "fictional" couple who decide to spice up their long-term relationship by breaking up a little. Basically, they decide to have "together" days, and "fuck who you want" days, which, of course, goes off without a hitch - especially when Wein takes up with a nubile temptress played by Olivia Thirlby. I'm not familiar with the work of Wein or Lister-Jones, but they've assembled a pretty impressive cast (drawn mostly from the New York City theater scene). And then there's the Thirlby. And when you've got the Thirlby, you might as well cut a silly, FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS-ish rap video. It's embedded below, and you are quite welcome.

Take that, Joaquin. Here's the trailer:
