What does it mean "as breezy as it's heartbreaking"?
I am listening a VOA news about the movie "Rudy Sparks" where I encounter the sentence "Rudy Sparks is an intelligent story, as breezy as it's heartbreaking, its superb cast makes it one of the season's best."
I don't understand the phrase "as breezy as it's heartbreaking", does it mean it is breezy and heartbreaking?
Yes. Breezy means that it moves along lightly, gently and quickly, like a breeze. Something that is breezy would not normally be "weighty" nor emotional enough to be heartbreaking. Yet this story is said to be both breezy and heartbreaking.
