    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.

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
