Broken, Rufus Norris (2012)

I loved this film so much. It’s essentially about bad things happening in the midst of goodness. About pulling through, whether that means staying or going to the next part of life. Most importantly it’s about a child having to witness these things on her own for the first time. And that’s what the film does best, show us a child becoming a teenager. I have a major soft spot for films that successfully portray children (especially when they’re the main characters). The last quarter of the film is unnecessarily and excessively dramatic but the rest of the film manages to couple the drama and the innocent happiness so well. For some people it will be too “indie” in the soundtrack and aesthetics but I like that kind of stuff so I was delighted. Eloise Laurence is brilliant and I definitely want to see more of her!
