Director Bruce McDonald and screenwriter Don McKeller teamed up with noted indie rock band Broken Social Scene for this fusion of music and romantic comedy-drama. Caroline (Georgina Reilly) is a student spending a few days in Toronto who ends up staying with Bruno (Greg Calderone), an old friend from the town where they grew up. Bruno has long been infatuated with Caroline, and he can hardly believe his good luck when he wakes up in bed with her. However, the timing of his romantic breakthrough is flawed, since Caroline will be leaving for France the next day. On her last night in town, Caroline's all-time favorite band, Broken Social Scene, will be playing a big show, and she can't think of a better way to spend the evening. However, the show's venue has been moved at the last minute, and her friend Blake (Kjartan Hewitt) can no longer get her passes for the concert as promised. If Bruno wants to truly win Caroline's heart, he has to find a way to get her the tickets she's dreaming of. Director McDonald incorporated footage shot by amateur filmmakers of scene of Toronto in the summer into This Movie is Broken's staged scenes and concert material to help give the picture a more naturalistic feel; it received its world premiere at the 2010 South by Southwest Film Festival.
