Now this is a date movie I think everyone can get behind. As the Playlist reports, the latest film from Canadian director Bruce McDonald revolves around none other than everyone’s favorite Canadian indie outfit, Broken Social Scene. This Movie Is Broken tells the story of a guy named Bruno (played by Greg Calderone) who attempts to win the love of his longtime crush Caroline (Georgina Reilly) by giving her a night to remember. We’ll let the plot synopsis take it from here.
“And tonight, as it happens, Broken Social Scene, her favourite band, is throwing a big outdoor bash. Maybe if Bruno, with the help of his best pal Blake (Kerr Hewitt), can score tickets and give Caroline a night to remember, he can keep this miracle alive.”
And yes, Broken Social Scene will be featured in the film, as actual crowd-sourced audience-shot concert footage will be interlaced with the fictional narrative.
This Movie Is Broken is set for release in Canada on June 25th. It is not known if or when the movie will be released in America. For now, check out the trailer below. And of course, don’t forget this is only the first of many BSS-related films in the pipeline.
