  • Summary: Syd, an eccentric bookseller with delusions of grandeur fueled by red wine, caused a rift five years ago between the freewheeling bohemian residents of his house and the family next door. Over the course of a balmy summer, he now tries to draft the boy next door to make videos for his online book business. Introverted young Curtis is reluctant at first, but soon gets drawn in by Syd's creative fervor. Their unlikely bond dissolves bad blood between their households, replacing old grudges and repressed secrets with new camaraderie and fresh possibility. Collapse

    Writer-director Laura Colella hasn’t strayed far from home (these characters are her actual housemates, rechristened into fiction), but her project feels like a casual experiment gone wonderfully right.

    A small gem of a film, Breakfast is a lovely tapestry of subtlety, full of sly, smart humor and unforced insights into human nature.

    More about ambience than narrative progress, so if you don't like these kinds of characters (ie: hippy-dippy aesthetes), the film will drive you up a wall.

    Breakfast With Curtis is so gentle, it doesn’t bother with antagonists, or even much conflict.

    Desultory, dauntingly DIY but secretly efficient, Breakfast With Curtis is something like a leafy summer afternoon in movie form.

    Beyond this general outline, plot and character development are afterthoughts, or maybe never-thoughts.

    It's a rare film that makes me want to tell the world to watch it! Laura Colella - filmmaker of TAXDAY, STAY UNTIL TOMORROW, and the short film STATUARY - brings to life a group of people (family, neighbors, lovers, cohorts) that inspire you to want a group of friends such as these. I've seen this film three times projected at a theatre - and now am waiting for my DVD copy. Open your mind - go beyond the hollywood indie film and experience a true indy film! Expand

    The best example of what a real independent filmmaker can do with no budget Laura Colella writes, directs, produces, edits and even appears in the film Spirit Award nominated... PT ANDERSON loved... BREAKFAST WITH CURTIS needs to be on the top of your queue coming to theatre now across the nation! Expand
