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

Great because every piece fit
6 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a perfect example of a movie being good because of fortunate fruition. Every piece was exactly as it needed to be to produce the vibe it was going for (or maybe even not exactly going for).

The acting was great, even if not done by seasoned pros. If the writer/director did the casting, she either lucked out or had a fully realized vision of exactly what she wanted. The set, the cinematography, the atmosphere, every bit of it placed perfectly to maximize effect.

Also, there were no cheap gags for laughs, no gimmicks thrown in to force you to empathize with anyone. It was very genuine and honestly constructed. It's a solid indie movie. It was definitely not made for the sake of making a movie. It never tried too hard or not enough. Well done.
