Broken Lines (2008)
Critic Reviews for Broken Lines
[Bettany's] tour de force performance lights up the screen more than anything else.
There's a stonking cast - Paul Bettany as the waitress's disabled partner, Rita Tushingham as a knackered caff worker, Olivia Williams as the glossy fiancee - but they're saddled with dialogue sagging with thematic relevance or site-specific colour.
Sincere but poorly scripted and badly acted by leads Dan Fredenburgh and Doraly Rosa.
Broken Lines is all about Bettany, who gives a fantastic performance. But even he can't paper over the cracks.
By no means totally broken, but it doesn't quite deliver the way it could.
Even Paul Bettany and Olivia Williams in support can't detract from a corny script full of dangling plot threads that resolves itself with a shrug of an ending.
