Synopsis:
"Broken" is the captivating coming of age tale of Skunk - an eleven year old diabetic girl growing up in the suburbs of North London - and her earth shattering journey into adolescence.
Skunk (Eloise Laurence and Lily James) has a relatively carefree existence living with her dad Archie (Tim Roth), her older brother Jed (Bill Milner) and their Au-pair Kasia (Zana Marjanovic). But when she witnesses a sudden and brutal act of extreme violence between two of her neighbours, the comfortable, familiar neighbourhood she once knew slowly begins to unravel around her with drastic consequences.

CHARMING, YET DARK, FAMLY DRAMA - Broken review by GF

Spoiler Alert
19/03/2015

Powerful film often dark, yet often funny and moving, this UK film focuses on three neighbouring families, who are all in their own way 'Broken'.

The central character 'Skunk', a twelve year old girl, played by newcomer Eloise laurence is the glue holding the film together and the film is formed by her relationships with her Father in particular and the other characters.

This film won the British Independent Film of the year and to attract such actors such as Tim Roth and Denis Lawson, it was going to have to be something special and it certainly is - definitely a must see, and proof that UK cinema is capable of producing more than fluff about Royal families and second rate gangster flicks.

Gritty dramatic, moving - Broken review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
19/06/2015

Wonderful suburban British melodrama, full of classy acting talent, most notably Lily James as 'Skunk' with terrific highs and tragic lows, a roller-coaster journey through the modern world we live in.
