Academy Award® Nominee for Best Foreign Language Film

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. The Broken Circle Breakdown, directed and co-written by Felix van Groeningen, is a portrait of a relationship from beginning to end, propelled by a soundtrack of bluegrass music.
