Broken Circle Breakdown may be remembered as the movie that introduced the rest of the world to Veerle Baetens. The Belgian singer/actress stars as a woman who lives an idyllic life in the countryside with her husband (Johan Heldenbergh) and young daughter (Nell Cattrysse), singing in a bluegrass band when she is not tending the chickens or enjoying the beauty around her. When their daughter falls ill, the film goes back in time to follow Baetens and Heldenbergh as they meet, fall in love, and bring a new life into the world. Academy Award® nomination, Best Foreign Language Film. 110 min.
"Traditional bluegrass songs of loss and grief provide the inspiration and score for this innovative Belgian, Flemish-language musical drama." - Liam Lacey, Toronto Globe and Mail
