Audience Reviews for Break of Hearts

Early Hepburn in clunky drama of a fool and the woman he doesn't appreciate until it's almost too late but who loves him anyway.

Break of Hearts (1935) -- [3.0] -- Katharine Hepburn plays an aspiring composer who falls in love with a successful conductor. He cheats on her, they split up, they miss each other, they get back together. Snore. Supporting player John Beal is five times more appealing than phoney baloney leading man Charles Boyer. There's no chemistry between Hepburn and Boyer, and no believable reason they should ever want to stay together.
