Mental disability, divorce, first boyfriends, teen pregnancy, bullying....yes, there is a lot going on in "Broken." And while the first trailer for the film does at least highlight the strong performances from the cast, it's too bad it's in service of a picture that doesn't quite do their work justice.

With an election season in full swing, and the economy still on uneven footing, perhaps there is no better time for "Arbitrage," the feature film debut of Nicholas Jarecki (the brother of Eugene and Andrew Jarecki). And pulling together a cast that includes Susan Sarandon, Brit Marling, Tim Roth, Laetitia Casta, Nate Parker and Chris Eigeman, all led by what's regarded by many to be the best performance in years by Richard Gere, this should make an impression this fall.

If the final season of “Breaking Bad” airs in two halves, does that mean there’s actually two seasons left? In the end, it doesn’t matter – AMC has confirmed the show’s return on July 15th, and that should be enough cause for celebration. Eight episodes will air over the summer, then leave our fall and winter without resolution, before coming back in the summer of 2013. Star Bryan Cranston essentially confirmed all this back in March, but apparently the man is not yet verified as an official news source, sadly. [AV Club]

As Harvey Weinstein crawls on hands and knees up the Croisette, searching desperately for the next film to equal the success of last year’s golden child, “The Artist,” it can be hard to recall just how unique and singular the film seemed when first shown at Cannes, before its subsequent release and obnoxious awards season buzz. The plain fact is, director Michel Hazanavicius & Co. made a tremendous film, and today news has sprung up that the cast and crew will continue to pursue interesting projects, ones that find them in a distinctly different environment than before.

There is a difference between a kitchen sink drama and a drama that includes everything but the kitchen sink, and unfortunately for "Broken," it's more of the latter than the former. Marking the feature debut by theater director Rufus Norris and with Tim Roth, Cillian Murphy and Rory Kinnear among the ensemble, the is the kind of movie that mistakes adding a new plot twist every fifteen minutes for narrative momentum and drama.

Actor Also Joins Peter Mullan In Hitman Flick 'The Liability'Tim Roth's got to be looking over at old pal and compatriot Gary Oldman with a little envy right now. Roth might have found moderate success on U.S. TV with "Lie To Me" (and he's been signed to a deal with Fox TV for another series), but his co-star in "Meantime" and "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead" is appearing in billion-dollar "Harry Potter" and "Batman" movies and looking like a serious potential to be a Best Actor nominee at the Oscars for his amazing performance in "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy."

In the admittedly tiny sub-genre of harrowing-late-1990s-domestic-dramas-starring-Ray-Winstone-and-directed-by-well-respected-British-character-actors-who-have-yet-to-make-a-second-film, Gary Oldman's "Nil By Mouth" just has the edge -- underrated to this day, the film showed an assured hand from Oldman, and has two towering performances, by Winstone and Kathy Burke, the latter of whom picked up Best Actress at Cannes in 1997. But that's not to undervalue Tim Roth's "The War Zone," an adaptation of Alexander Stuart's novel examining incest and sexual abuse in a Devonshire family -- it's incredibly powerful stuff, and it's a shame that Roth has never followed it up.
