Easton Library to Show British Film 'Broken'
Eleven-year-old Skunk is an innocent daydreamer until the day she witnesses her bitter and angry older neighbor, Mr. Oswald, savagely beating Rick, a psychologically-troubled boy from the neighborhood. Skunk’s innocence begins to fade as she is unwittingly drawn into her neighbors’ dark troubles. Her home, her neighborhood, and her school all become dangerous environments where her happy childhood gives way to fear-filled doubt and the promise of a complex, broken future.
The unrated film, which runs approximately 90 minutes, will be shown in the Catherine Drake Meeting Room, which is handicapped accessible from Church Street. Patrons are welcome to bring light refreshments, and the screening is free and open to the public.
Broken is part of the Film Movement series featured at the Library. The DVD will be available to patrons for checkout after the public showing.
