Jennifer Jason Leigh,
A dark drama about wants and needs and what a person will do to satisfy them.
"The Broken Giant" was not released that I know of, but I was lucky enough to see it and found myself strangely moved by it. The story is an unlikely tale of a small town minister whose life begins to unravel when he befriends a "run away", an woman whose relationship with her father is so dysfunctional that the movie only hints at it, allowing the viewers imagination to do the rest. The townspeople, mayor and congregation all become involved when the minister's work begins to suffer. You have to watch this movie close to understand why the minister gets involved in this at all and by the end of the movie you will find yourself screaming "Someone rewind this thing. I think I missed something." And you did. I have seen it five times. I finally understand it. But do NOTHING while you watch it. The plot and its twists are so subtle that you will miss something important if you do so much as look down into your popcorn bucket.
