Although movies about breaking up can be tearjerkers there is an undeniable theraputic vaule to them as well. One might open a tub of rocky road, clutch a box of tissues and cuddle up under a blanket and “go through” some emotions as a way to vicariously find healing. Sometimes however, it IS just sad. This week on CinemaJaw, Matt, Ry and Pat break up, divorce, seperate (figuratively speaking of course) as we cover our Top 5 Movie Brea-ups, Divorces and Separations.

Joining us is a great mediator. Freshly minted Rotten Tomatoes critic, contributor at, not to mention his own site, and Director of the Chicago Indie Critics, back for his thrid ‘Jaw, Don Shanahan. With his background in education, Don writes with the goal of teaching life lessons, from the serious to the farcical, found within every film. Don’s movie reviews are also published in the Southland Voice community newspaper and on the social platform Medium for the MovieTime Guru page of AMI Publications, where he is listed as one of the 50 “Top Writers” in the topic of movies.
