Lena Headey breaks down in The Broken

This trailer immediately caught my eye. Not just because of the interesting poster idea, but also because Lena Headey’s name was attached to it. Which also makes the poster a rather twisted idea. Here you have Headey, a gorgeous woman, filling up the whole space on a poster for once and you can’t enjoy her good looks because the PR guys decided to have her head smashed in. While I do understand that choice, given the content of the trailer (see below), I can’t help but be a bit disappointed since it is the first poster that Headey is prominently featured on alone. Worthy to hang in my apartment just for the eye candy, but the gorgeous woman on it has her skull shattered. Shame. Understandable, but still a shame. Guess Headey better do a follow-up film about something that leaves her image intact for the poster. Her career seems to be going very well so I might get my wish sooner rather than later.

No matter how much I yearn for some eyecandy Lena poster, The Broken poster is interesting and twisted and immediately got me reading what was written next to it. How could I not click on the link and watch that trailer after that fascinating image? The bathtub scene that starts out the trailer doesn’t hurt either. Have a look below.

The Broken looks like a solid thriller with all the right elements. Cute girl, weird things happening, blood dripping from the ceiling.

For the story, since it wasn’t that evident in the trailer, I read that Gina, played by Headey, sees a doppelganger of herself driving past her one day in London. She follows that lady to her apartment, gets involved in a car accident and looses her memory. As she is trying to piece together her past and retrace her memory her life doesn’t seem her life anymore.

Seemingly more a psychological thriller than a hack and slash film, The Broken stars Lena Headey, Richard Jenkins, Asier Newman, Michelle Duncan, Melvil Poupaud and is directed and written by Sean Ellis.



  1. I am unable to understand this post. But well some points are useful for me.

  2. I don’t really know how to help you other than try and read it again. Not a tough read, no big words. According to your comment you understood some points but not others. Maybe pointing them out instead of commenting about your general inability to understand it would have helped.
