Storyline

Over the course of a balmy east coast summer, an introverted, bespectacled teenager is brought into the strange and delightful world of his bohemian neighbors. What unfolds, against the backdrop of lush flowerbeds and overgrown vegetable patches, is a mirthful story of unlikely and rekindled friendships. But for all of its wine-soaked, pot-infused dreaminess, Breakfast is firmly rooted in reality. The rambling purple house where the action happens is writer/director/co-star Laura Colella's, and her captivating cast is composed of her very own housemates and neighbors. Despite the homespun approach and unfettered narrative, Colella's tale has a distinct vision and clear intention, one joyously devoted to the pleasure principle. Written by Anonymous

Give this one a chance...I loved it!
4 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I decided to watch this on Netflix, I wasn't expecting much. I even thought I'd likely not watch all of it. This is often the case when I've never heard of a film or of any of the actors.

Well, I was very pleasantly surprised at how interesting every character was and how skillfully each actor portrayed his or her character.

Congratulations to the writer/director Laura Colella for creating such great characters and for her very fine direction. Everything was clear, understandable and completely believable. The casting was pretty much perfect, too - right down to the "look" of each actor.

Again, all the actors really did a stellar job, but I must give special mention to young Jonah Parker who gave a beautifully nuanced performance. I wish there was more info on him in his profile here, because he has now piqued my interest. If you're reading this, Jonah, I strongly encourage you to stick with acting! I will very much look forward to seeing you again and again in a variety of roles. I will remember your name and be watching for you!

I was surprised to see this currently only has a 6.7 rating. I gave it 8 out of 10 and am thinking, as I write this, it may really deserve a 9, for all the reasons mentioned above.

If you don't require special effects, sex, or violence in movies to enjoy them, I strongly encourage you to see this one.
