Broken (Empire On-Demand Review)

BrokenSquare

Broken (2013), VOD

As the title suggests, the pieces of Rufus Norris’s directorial debut don’t always come together, but the overwrought plotting – a tangle of dysfunctional family dramas in a London suburb, seen through the eyes of an 11-year-old girl – is offset by down-to-earth writing, matter-of-fact direction and pleasingly jumbled editing, giving this engaging drama the feel of a half-remembered dream.

Empire rating: ★★★
