This is a movie designed for hopeless romantics. Being one myself, I can't say how the rest of the population would enjoy the movie (I tend to think they would find it a little unrealistic) but I know we do!
Basically the main character is a lonely young woman looking for that something, whatever it might be. She's got a medicine cabinet full of anti-anxiety pills and can't seem to find focus for her life. Enter Julian, the sexy Frenchman who sweeps her off her feet.
The acting is pretty solid and there are some memorable lines in the script.
The three best things about this movie are the ending, the old grandmother towards the end and the hopefulness the movie carries in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Parker Posey commands attention March 22 2008
By R. Gawlitta - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The always excellent and talented Parker Posey finally has a role where she's in every scene; she is magnificent. I've read all the other Amazon comments, and I'm sad that so many missed the point. Often compared to Sofia Coppola's debut film, "Lost in Translation", which made light of the human condition, "Broken English" is more about the true life kinds of things that are funny or sad, depending on how we deal with them. I was never bored. Ms. Posey commanded attention at all times, and I was eager to find out the situation in which she would next find herself. Excellent performances from Justin Theroux, Drea di Matteo and Ms. Cassavetes own mom, the great Gena Rowlands, flow naturally; Melvil Poupaud, as Julien, the French connection, was quite sweet and fine. He is indeed a beautiful man, looking better as the film goes on, and as Nora gets to know him better. I can relate very much to Nora's character, especially when she goes to a party she doesn't want to be at, and then meets the right person. Ms. Cassavetes, in a DVD extra, refers to this as a comedy. It's much more. I don't want to blab away the plot, as others did, but this is definitely worth seeing. Parker Posey's diversity was so well explored in the mock-umentary films of Christopher Guest. She is an Indie darling, and for good reason. Ms. Cassavetes, too, has proven herself, and I'm waiting for her next endeavor.

5.0 out of 5 stars great movie March 18 2008
By William W. Chen - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I was curious to check out this movie once after reading about it and seeing the trailer online. As a over 30 single guy, the premise appealed to me and I could identify with a lot of the things Parker Posey's character goes through. I loved the movie, it makes some very insightful (and hilarious) observations about feeling a little lost and left behind. But above all I adored Parker Posey's performance. Definitely worth checking out.

This movie is honestly one of my favorite movies ever. Being a New Yorker, I can relate to the character. The music is great and the scenes are very reminiscent of my experiences here...

I love this movie if you're a single girl who is looking to find yourself and find passion again...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Classic Dec 16 2008
By Sophia Marie - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Zoey Cassavetes carries on the family tradition of her famous family, John Cassavetes and Gena Rowlands. This film was endearing and captivating as well as possessing just the right amount of neurotic anxiety that has commonly plagued New York characters. Parker Posey and Melvil Poupaud are captivating in this Modern Romantic Drama. When the film ended, I immediately wanted more. Perhaps Zoey would consider picking up where they left off. I highly recommend this film for 30 somethings still trying to figure it all out.
