review by
Mike Haberfelner

Harry (Brett Rice) has in his time an award winning professional billard champion, but has fallen on hard times and taken to drinking, and now he only plays once in a while for pebbles, to teach local hotshots a lesson. And his former manager George (Dennis Neal) is still a good enough friend to pick out hotshots for him to beat. Mina (Jane Park Smith) is an up-and-coming billard champ from Korea with lots of talent but lack of discipline - but she has an autistic son back home whom she wants to sustain through her billard career ... and so she asks Harry for assistance. At first though, Harry outright refuses, and when he finally gives in, Mina's puzzled enough by his methods to prove to be a stubborn student - so despite the best of intentions of the both od them, they butt heads quite often, and Mina's career as a result doesn't pick up steam. Things change when Harry finally reconnects with his daughter in prison (Piper Rae Patterson) and is pretty much kicked in the emotional groin by his ex (Karen LeBlanc), which leads him to getting drunk that heavily that with the help of George he tries to sober up. And the more he succeeds, the better a coach becomes for Mina. But will that be enough for her to finally go pro?


Now billard is a game not everybody can get into, especially when it comes to just watching the game - but actually, the game is only the catalyst in HeartBreak, which is much more a tale about two characters who both must overcome their very own obstacles to get to where they need to be, and thanks to a script that makes the characters likeable in all their fallability, relatable in their shortcomings, and gives them both a good character arc that push the movie beyond typical "heart-warming" fare and really makes one feel with the characters. And strong performances and a subtle directorial effort help make this a very watchable movie.
