Sean Ellis' THE BRøKEN Trailer and Clips

There are a number of us around here who were big fans of Sean Ellis' directorial debut Cashback. A solid balance of the romantic, mundane and humourous that made ample use of Ellis' photographer skills in creating a rich visual palette for, of all things, a supermarket. It looks like those visual skills are going to be tossed into the horror film arena with the follow-up. That would be The Brøken, for which you will find clips and the trailer below the break). Now the girl in the bathtub is hardly a new or original image in the genre, it is notable that a Glazer/Kubrick vibe is (to me anyway) visible amongst the images. With a cast like the fabulously underused Lena Heady (who easily has the best performance in 300 and has done solid work in under appreciated gems like Ripley's Game, Merlin and Aberdeen. Is anyone watching the Sarah Connor Chronicles? That's her as Ms. Connor), as well as Richard Jenkins (fresh off Burn After Reading) and mighty Dane, Ulrich Thompson (and actor who always cuts a fine performance). Am I looking forward to this one? Hell yea.

On a busy street in London, Gina thinks she sees herself drive past in her own car. Stunned by this strange event, Gina follows the mystery woman up to her apartment. From here, events take an eerie turn for the worse until Gina's awareness slides from solid reality into a world that will haunt more than just her nightmares.

Kurt's Cashback Review

That short film is probably my favorite short film ever made. It really delivers such a funny, beautiful, and genuine examination of time and of an artist's love of the female form. (I worked in a grocery store for years during high school and connected with the character to that extent a great deal.)

The trailer and clips don't work for me, their just white boxes.
