Broken is the feature film debut of British director Rufus Norris. Adapted from a Daniel Clay novel, the picture is the story of three families living in a North London cul-de-sac as seen through the eyes of young girl Skunk (Eloise Laurence). Affecting and current, Broken blends gritty realism with just a hint of melodrama to create a state-of-the-nation piece that works on many levels.
Arbitrage is the feature directorial debut of writer Nicholas Jareck about successful hedge-fund manager Robert Miller and the consequences he must face when honesty is no longer an option. Richard Gere is on top form is a film about the morality of finance in post-crash America.
With the building anticipation of Django Unchained, Best For Film was invited down to the unparallelled Prince Charles Cinema just off Leicester Square in London to enjoy every single Quentin Tarantino directed film back-to-back.

Here’s to our next 15 hour marathon at the PCC!
Mutiny, death and philosophy on the high seas in this two-part made-for-TV adaptation of Jack London’s 1906 novel The Sea Wolf.
