Plot Summary

The summer holidays have just begun and 11 year-old Skunk's afternoons are full of day dreams and curious wanderings around her neighborhood - with the exception that she must regularly give herself injections to combat her type 1 diabetes. When, one day, Skunk (Eloise Laurence) discovers her bitter and angry older neighbor, Mr. Oswald (Rory Kinnear), savagely beating Rick, a psychologically-troubled boy from the neighborhood whom Mr. Oswald's daughter has callously and fictitiously accused of rape, Skunk's innocence begins to vanish. Trying to find solace with her loving nanny (Zana Marjanovic) and father (Tim Roth), with whom she is very close, Skunk is unwittingly drawn into her neighbors' unfolding melodrama involving violence, sex, and life-shattering illness. Her home, her neighborhood and her school all become treacherous environments where the happy certainties of childhood give way to a fear-filled doubt, and the promise of a complex, broken future. Overwhelmed by her experiences, Skunk herself is drawn into an ethereal chaos from which she may only return through the intense love of those closest to her.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: At a certain point, Mr. Norris forsakes realism for theatricalized fantasy, and "Broken" ultimately loses its stylistic cohesion, if not its humanity. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jul 18, 2013

Fresh: Norris has adapted Daniel Clay's young adult novel with a sensitivity that will appeal to teens and adults alike. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Jul 18, 2013

Fresh: The comic and tragic elements are nicely balanced, and the three families' stories neatly and economically knit together. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Jul 19, 2013

Fresh: [It] drives its plot via an interesting and unusual character: the female victim who's actually a wholesale liar. – Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, Jul 19, 2013
