Bree and Drew just broke up. Panicking to pack up their stuff before the movers arrive, they fall back on witty repartee to mask their true feelings as Drew tries to force Bree to take back the ring she never wanted.
Writer: Amelia Wasserman
Directors/producers: Nick Wilson, Amelia Wasserman
Full disclosure: we made this film together about our break-up, after our break-up. In hindsight maybe not the best idea but hey, it seemed like a good idea at the time!
We wanted to show a couple on their last legs who are choosing defensiveness and humour over honesty and vulnerability until they can’t mask their true feelings any longer.
