Exclusive: Watch a Clip From Like You Mean It

Philipp Karner, LIKE YOU MEAN IT

The film was inspired by a real-life break up that director Philipp Karner experienced.

A hit at Outfest, Like You Mean It is a film about two men at a crossroads. Jonah is madly in love with Mark, but Mark isn't so sure anymore. The semi-autobiographical film from director Philipp Karner was called "courageous" by the L.A. Times and compared to "such fine gay-themed character studies as Ira Sachs' Keep the Lights On and Andrew Haigh's Weekend.

"The film explores that sobering moment when the high of romantic love wears off and two people are seeing each other for who they really are--not who they hoped each other to be," Karner tells Out. "The film is inspired by a breakup I went through a few years ago with someone I loved very much. We did everything we could to get back on track, but I eventually had to admit that I had fallen out of love with him. It was a really tough time, but I learned a lot about myself. Not all things are meant to last. I have never written anything so personal, so at times it was definitely a challenging process. "

Breaking Glass is releasing on VOD/DVD December 8. Watch an exclusive clip below:
