Callum Keith Rennie,
A painter struggling for inspiration finds an unexpected muse after he accepts a teaching position in a small town and becomes the caregiver to Eddie, a seemingly docile art student with a rare sleepwalking condition.
Bruno wakes up in bed next to Caroline, his long time crush. But tomorrow she's off for school in France, and maybe she only granted this miracle as a parting gift for her long time friend. So tonight is Bruno's last chance. And tonight, as it happens, Broken Social Scene, her favourite band, is throwing a big outdoor bash. Maybe if Bruno, with the help of his best pal Blake, can score tickets and give Caroline a night to remember, he can keep this miracle alive. Written by
This Movie Is Broken is either a blatant self promotional film for the band Broken Social Scene or the writers truly lack any talent and had to compensate for their lack of skill and/or writers block by putting a live concert in to fluff out and fill 90% of their script.
To even suggest that this is a movie is misleading. It's an hour and a half music clip showing a live band (Broken Social Scene) intermingled with perhaps a total of 10 minutes of actual dialogue and 'storyline' about the characters.
I can't even imagine how anyone can even call this a movie other than the fact that it's comprised of a series of still images strung together.
Unless you want to sit and watch Broken Social Scene play live for almost an hour and a half, avoid this film.
I have seen music clips tell a better tale in less than 5 minutes.
The movie summary for this film has almost the whole story in it.
