Broken English movie review
Starring: Parker Posey and Melvil Poupaud
In "Broken English", Nora Wilder is freaking out. Everyone around her is in a relationship, is married, or has children. Nora is in her thirties, alone with job she's outgrown and a mother who constantly reminds her of it all. Not to mention her best friend Audrey's "perfect marriage". But after a series of disastrous dates, Nora unexpectedly meets Julien, a quirky Frenchman who opens her eyes to a lot more than love.
While the plot may seem a bit overdone, it is. There's not much new to "Broken English" that wasn't already seen in so many other movies like it. Although, "Broken English" does have more of an independent feel to it. So, if you like that style of movie, you'll probably like "Broken English" better than those who are seeking a blockbuster.
I found the characters annoying, especially Nora. It is a "life movie", but not a very good one. It's just boring. I kept waiting for something exciting to happen, and it never did.
I suggest watching "Broken English" if you love independent films that are all the same. Otherwise, don't waste your time with this one
