Check out the international trailer for the British coming-of-age drama "Broken" starring Tim Roth, Cillian Murphy, Rory Kinnear, and newcomer Eloise Laurence. 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 (Laurence) who, after witnessing a brutal attack between neighbors, finds herself deeply traumatized. Now it's up to her Atticus Finch-type father (Roth) to pick up the pieces of her shattered suburban life.
"Broken" marks the feature debut of the award-winning theater director Rufus Norris who worked with an adapted screenplay by writer Mark O'Rowe (Boy A, Intermission). Since its premiere at Cannes this year, the film has been flying under the radar, only grabbing the attention of French distributor, Le Pacte. While the film is slated to open in France at the end of this month, there's no word when (or if) it will hit the States -- or the UK.
The story of a young girl in North London whose life changes after witnessing a violent attack.
