Break Up is a 1998 American crime thriller film directed by Paul Marcus and written by Anne Amanda Opotowsky. It stars Bridget Fonda, Hart Bochner, Kiefer Sutherland, and Steven Weber.


After blacking out in a violent domestic battle, Jimmy awakens in the hospital to learn that her abusive husband, Frank, has died in a fiery crash...and that she is the prime suspect. As the police focus on building their case against Jimmy, she uncovers evidence indicating that Frank may not only still be alive, but getting away with murder. Jimmy, in a daring escape from police custody, races towards a final confrontation with justice and revenge.



The film was acquired in 1997 by Harvey Weinstein, who then ran MiraMax films with his brother Bob, who ran the Dimension label. “We are thrilled to be announcing this great movie as our first project so soon after the deal was made,” Miramax co-chairman Harvey Weinstein said. The film received solid reviews .[1]
