one of my top favorite movies!
19 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

to say i enjoyed broken English would be an understatement. this movie struck home with me like few others. a bit slow for your average audience, i found it was wonderfully acted, awkward, painful, poignant, sad, realistic, and thankfully not your typical Hollywood ending! parker posey is fantastic as a sometimes neurotic, pensive, emotional and desperate woman who feels as though she'll be alone forever. my favorite scenes are the bathtub, the restaurant/desert/bathroom scene and the one where she's finally let it go and decided to have fun despite it all when her and her girlfriend are in Paris. one of my top favorite movies!
