Irish Film Institute -BROKEN + DANIEL CLAY Q&A



91 minutes, U.K., 2012

In collaboration with the British Council on the occasion of ‘Words On The Street: Literature Night’ (May 15th), the IFI is delighted to welcome author Daniel Clay to introduce a screening of Rufus Norris’ acclaimed adaptation of his novel, Broken, and take part in a post-screening Q&A session on his work.

Adapted for the screen by Mark O’Rowe, the film has discovered a real talent in Eloise Laurence, who plays 11-year-old Skunk, daughter of divorced lawyer Archie (Tim Roth).

When a neighbour’s daughter accuses Skunk’s friend Rick, a young man with learning difficulties, of rape, a chain of events is set in motion that sees the young girl dealing with the repercussions of violence, first love, strained familial relationships, and personal danger. Her warmth and intelligence keeps the viewer engaged throughout.
