Critic Reviews for The Breaks

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2)

The Breaks is hilarious, well acted, and speaks not only to 20-somethings, but to anyone who ever had a dream, and did everything in their power to try and achieve it.

April 12, 2017 | Full Review…

It's an affectionate, determinedly credible period piece with lightly fictionalized versions of people and places from the era.
