Teen movie lovers, rejoice!
Imagine having this great passion, but feeling like everyone and everything’s conspiring against you, trying to keep you from pursuing it. That’s how high school freshman Bloom (Liv Southard) feels when she’s dragged to a new town with her drunk and drowning uncle, Mayn (Mark Marchello, who is also the film’s writer/director). All Bloom wants to do is dance, but she’s already gotten on the bad side of mean girl and head school dancer, Harmony (Alexa Sutherland), due to an instant connection with her boyfriend, Herbie (William Leon).
Harmony dislikes newbie Bloom so much that she wouldn’t accept her onto the school’s dance team, no matter how good she was at tryouts. From there, you’ve got your usual new girl vs. mean girl, vying for a crown with a semi-competition at the end. Luckily, Bloom’s sweet, instrument-playing friend Gracie (Sarah Rochelle) cleans up a space in the woods for her to use to practice for the competition, complete with a tied-up, broken branch as a ballet barre. Such a great, new friend!

The film has a little bit of something for everyone. You’ve got all your classics: the new girl, mean girl, rude boy, boy next door, band girl, bored teacher, horrible parents, and interesting bosses.
That last one happens to be played by none other than former SNL star Chris Kattan. While most of the movie focuses on the everyday going-ons with the teens, Chris is there to help break up those parts throughout the movie. He brings with him his usual quirk and comedic style to add a little extra fun and flair to the flick.
Take a look at this exclusive clip featuring Chris Kattan as boss Robby showing his new employee, and Bloom’s uncle, Mayn, the ropes.
Breaking Legs is now available to purchase on DVD or rent on VOD!
