Just finished watching BROKEN ENGLISH, the debut film from Zoe Cassavettes. It was a nice romantic dramedy with a smart, terrific lead performance from Parker Posey. Effortlessly sexy and very honest and believeable, her performance is one of the best of the year. The movie was a wee bit contrived but the unexpected nuance and a couple of nice story surprises makes this movie a cut-above for the genre. Produced by Magnolia films, it doesn't look like it cost too much to make, but that was part of the charm to be honest. The New York and Paris scenery is very appealing and the French actor, who's name escapes me, who plays Posey's main love interest was quite good as well. A very enjoyable little film.
