The Broken Circle Breakdown

Now Playing Synopsis: The Misfortunates director Felix Van Groeningen returns with this romantic melodrama about two passionate young lovers who find their happy future threatened by an unforeseen tragedy. The moment Elise (Veerle Baetens) laid eyes on Didier (Johan Heldenbergh), it was love at first sight. He was an atheist banjo player in a spirited bluegrass band, and she was the devout owner of a small tattoo shop. Although their personalities and belief systems were hopelessly at odds, Elise and Didier somehow managed to establish a deeply spiritual bond. Shortly after moving into a picturesque farmhouse, the couple welcome a beautiful baby daughter named Maybelle. For the next six years, everything seemed perfect. When young Maybelle falls gravely ill, however, her disparate parents clash in the ways they choose to confront their grim reality. Now, just when Elise and Didier must come together to fight for their daughter's future, they realize that the differences that once made them strong may ultimately become their downfall. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Veerle Baetens, Johan Heldenbergh, Nell Cattrysse, Geert van Rampelberg, Nils De Caster Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
