"Broken English" will debut on DVD August 21st, distributed by Magnolia Home Entertainment,
It's a romantic comedy that's a bittersweet and nuanced examination of hope, compromise and love.
Nora Wilder (Parker Posey), a thirty-something Manhattanite finds her quest for love consistently results in falling flat on her face. After a series of disastrous first dates, she meets Julien, a quirky Frenchman with an unabashed passion for living.
Inevitably, Nora discovers she must look inward before finding a new outlook on life and love. Cynical about romance and relationships, she pours herself into her work and struggles to ignore the admonitions of her best friend and overbearing mother.
The film marks the feature film debut of Zoe R. Cassavetes - daughter of legendary film maven John Cassavetes and Gena Rowlands (who also appears in the film).
"Broken English" co-stars Emmy-winner Drea de Matteo ("The Sopranos") as the happily married foil to Posey's romantic isolation, and Rowlands as the disapproving mother. The film also features a great supporting cast including Justin Theroux, Tim Guinee and Peter Bogdanovich.
Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, "Broken English" is a quirky exploration of loneliness, love and everything in between.
Special features will include a "making of" featurette and deleted scenes.
The Suggested Retail Price will be $26.98, but most stores will be offering this for about $20.00.
