Indie Trailer Sunday: 'Broken' with Cillian Murphy & Eloise Laurence
"Everything always goes wrong…! Why do only bad things happen?" Today's worth watching trailer is a British coming-of-age drama called Broken, starring the esteemed actors Tim Roth and Cillian Murphy with Rory Kinnear and Zana Marjanovic, but they're not actually the main focus of this film. Broken is the story of a young girl, played by newcomer Eloise Laurence, in North London whose life changes after witnessing a violent attack. The trailer lays out most of the story and world in which this occurs. It gets a bit odd when a car drops in the background, plus the guy dancing in the parking lot, but it doesn't look too bad.
The story, based on English author Daniel Clay's novel (which was inspired by Harper Lee's classic "To Kill a Mockingbird"), revolves around a young girl in North London whose life changes after witnessing a violent attack between neighbors. Broken is the directorial debut of British filmmaker Rufus Norris, previously an artistic director and theater director. The screenplay, based on Clay's novel, was written by Mark O'Rowe, of Intermission, Boy A and Perrier's Bounty previously. This first premiered in the Cannes Critics Week this year, but still doesn't have any official UK or US release date yet. Le Pacte is handling French distribution.

This looks really good - hope it gets a release. And I agree, Cill makes anything that much better!

This just looks beautifully shot and well done. Definitely in.

So, correct me if I'm wrong, but: Is the main antagonist in this movie a guy who brutally beats up a pedophile in front of two children watching? And then later on, takes his vigilantism too far and drop kicks a school-teacher in the face?
