Broken Hallelujah

The lives of three people collide in this Kiwi drama that is "not a love story but a story about love". 

Kirsty's comfortable life is upended when she finds out how her husband, Gary, has been keeping their business afloat.

Francis, an unassuming man, is desperately trying to convince his wife Miranda to give their marriage another chance. Things have started to go wrong since she started her new TV show 'Budget Blow Out'.

Lex, a young real estate agent - his heart set on the award for best salesman of the year - has just one last sale to clinch before he can beat four times winner Terry Fuller.

A single event collides their stories together. On an isolated beach the unexpected happens and in one profound moment they each realise how fragile and precious life can be.

Strong acting and a strong storyline

This movie took you through the consequences of decisions made and the emotions from those decisions. Well worth a second visit for me. Pity it is not in more cinemas around Auckland.
