Movie Info

A waitress looking to make good on a series of bad life choices finds her noble quest for redemption stifled when a deeply disturbed ex-boyfriend comes looking to win her back in this dark psychological drama from director Alan White. Hope (Heather Graham) has traveled quite a few darkened roadways in her relatively brief existence, but now the time has come to leave her past behind and realize her dreams of becoming an entertainer. Soon after moving to the big city, Hope makes the acquaintance of Will (Jeremy Sisto). When the pair subsequently gets involved with drugs, Hope realizes that in order to truly get her life together she must jettison her enabler once and for all, so she cuts off all ties to Will. Unfortunately for Hope, Will is determined to take deadly measures to ensure that he and his true love always remain together -- whether in the comforting light of life or the cold embrace of death.more

Formulaic soap opera has the makings of camp but the heart of an after-school special.

[The] script is so uneven that the result is like watching four different, equally bad, movies.

Broken is a pretentiously time-fragmented, tedious slog.

'Why?' you may wonder as the end credits roll on director Alan White's Broken.

Heather Graham's would-be singer-songwriter in Broken is a walking cliché in a film overstuffed with them.

Tiresome and turgid, Broken has nothing to say and says it slowly. Even the sex scenes are a bore.

Audience Reviews for Broken

Interesting movie - I'm not sure why, but from the cover I was expecting a b-grade horror, which this definitely isn't. Actually it was much better than I expected. I was a bit confused with it at first as it keeps going back in time, but it does make sense at the end and Heather Graham is great in this.

Great movie! Interesting story plot. Heather Graham stars, and portrays an intriguing character. Good music. A must-see!

I watched this a while back and I don't remember being impressed by it. Graham and Sisto are both rather weak leads and the story is not a happy one.
