20TH TITANIC CLOSES WITH BEST BRITISH INDEPENDENT FILM BROKEN

The 20th Titanic International Film Festival closes with the screening of Rufus Norris’ film, Broken. The English film drama is starring Eloise Laurence, Cillian Murphy (28 Days Later, Inception) and Tim Roth (Pulp Fiction, Four Rooms). Between 5-13th April 74 films were screened, including new works of established directors, debuting films of first-time filmmakers, numerous fascinating movies from lesser-known regions and a world premier as well.


 The plot of Rufus Norris’ drama takes place in Northern London and is focusing on an 11-year-old girl, Skunk (Eloise Laurence). The summer holiday has just begun with the promise of a lot of fun. Then Mr. Oswald, the ugly man who lives opposite, beats up Rick, the sweet, but unstable boy next door after his daughter accuses the boy of rape, and Skunk's innocence begins to be drained away at a speed and in a way she cannot control.

Broken

Skunk’s father (Tim Roth - Pulp Fiction, Four Rooms) is trying to calm her down, but her surroundings – home, neighbourhood, school – transform into a hostile space: the memories of a happy childhood are replaced by a sense of a broken world. Her last solace is her subtle friendship with Rick, but in the end she faces a hard decision. The choice to remain in this place she was never promised, or to leave it entirely - to live or to die. The film received The British Independent Film Award for the Best British Independent Film.
