BEND & BREAK explores young relationships and the cluelessness of men in search of direction. Set in beautiful
Montréal, a group of twenty-somethings struggle through the misguided awkwardness that comes with early romance.  

Bryce meets a French girl one day in the city. Jules runs into an old flame he has secretly been in love with for years. Blake realizes that his friend's sister is suddenly "all grown up" and these young men are forced to come to grips with the unknown… women. 

In the quirky vein of Diner and The Brothers McMullen, this ensemble-driven comedy will endear itself to anyone who has suffered and savored being a young adult.



Jordan Crowder is an actor and filmmaker born in Detroit, Michigan and raised in Montréal, Québec. Over the past decade he has developed a following on the Internet and is most known for his short films and sketches like Horror Friends (a parody which garnered him a nod from filmmaker Rob Zombie). BEND & BREAK is his first feature film. He is also a co-creator and cast member on the acclaimed comedy web series The Wingmen (which earned a Best Series award nomination at the 2008 SXSW Film Festival and a 2009 Streamys nomination). Jordan Crowder is a film school graduate of The University of Texas at Austin.

The idea for BEND & BREAK was inspired by my close friends and our frustrations with living in a city like Montreal. I had a unique opportunity where I could write each part for the actors who played them (the actors also being the people upon whom the story is based). I believe the film captures young men in their early twenties in a comedic but truthful manner. If nothing else, BEND & BREAK is a time capsule of the thoughts, situations, frustrations and joys that we have experienced at this period in our lives. I believe these experiences are universal and I trust the audience will relate to these characters and their stories… and laugh too.
