MacDonald previously worked with BSS on his 2007 film 'The Tracey Fragments,' which starred Ellen Page and featured a score composed by Broken Social Scene alongside several of their songs.
"Broken Social Scene has been my favorite band since I discovered 'You Forgot it
in People' in Soundscapes record store," MacDonald says. "That led me to 'Feel Good Lost,' 'Beehives,' the self-titled 'Red Album,' the 'solo' records by Brendan Canning
and Kevin Drew, the 'alumni' Jason Collett, Feist, Emily Haines and Metric, and
the 'Happiness Project' by Charles Spearin.
"The music inspired a love story that I have been longing to tell. I paired up with
Don McKellar and a movie was born. Throw in a hot summer day, a love triangle, a tiny perfect drama and we hope to have a sweet thing of a movie. A concert movie/love story experienced by people like us -- the fans of both film and music."
Watch the trailer after the jump and check back soon for an exclusive clip of 'This Movie is Broken' as well as full interviews with the filmmakers and the band.
