“It’s a fast-paced, modern indie-rom with a gritty edge that will appeal to both men and women… Lots of fun and delivers several emotional punches…” This summer: Go to Budapest... Make a movie... Have an affair. Ten years ago, a group of students fell in love with each other and had their perfect moment. Now screenwriter Nathan Beck is back in Budapest to shoot a movie about it. But his return stirs up memories for the old Breakfast Club survivors trying to cope in this city now their perfect moment is over: Gábor lives to make films but writes bubble bath ad copy to live. Virág is the hotshot career woman, with a different man in her bed each night and a bottle of vodka in her handbag. Luca (Gábor’s girlfriend and Nathan's ex) hides away in her home town because she's scared of love. And then there’s Judy Carter, movie star: seduced by the story of the Breakfast Club, she embarks on an affair with Nathan, risking the happy marriage that everyone but her believes in. It’s a only a matter of time before the story breaks and the press and her fans turn on her .... and two muckraking Hungarian journalists are digging up all the dirt they can find. The Budapest Breakfast Club plays like a mash-up of Judd Apatow, Richard Linklater and Woody Allen: a comedy with laughs, heart and brains. “Introducing every character through their life’s one perfect moment is a beautiful technique…”
