Break

PROJECT | GALLERY

Break is a gritty urban drama set on and around a London council estate and the local, run-down snooker hall.

Essentially a rags-to-riches, feel good story, the film follows the exploits of a gifted, inner-city kid, wasting his talents on crime, until one day, a chance encounter with an American stranger and former eight ball pool champion presents him with an opportunity to turn his life around. At this crossroad in his life, will he choose the right road and use his talent that has the potential to free him from his current lifestyle and surroundings?

BREAK is available now.

If Gittins is the heart then Yip is absolutely the soul of this movie, putting in a well-rounded performance.

This is a snooker movie you never knew you needed in your life; but more than that this is a story about a young man set in his ways that tells us, it is never too late to make those needed changes without clubbing you over the head with ropey cliched nonsense. Break respects it viewer and commands your respect in return.
