Paul Bettany (Wandavision, The Young Victoria) and Olivia Williams (Hanna, The Ghost Writer) front a stellar British cast in a powerful and emotional journey of love, obligation and conflict, set against the backdrop of London’s multi-cultural suburbia.


Helmed by British director and BAFTA Award nominee Sallie Aprahamian in her debut feature film, and co-written by cast members Doraly Rosa (Mrs Henderson Presents, Love Actually) and Dan Fredenburgh (The Bourne Ultimatum, Love Actually), BROKEN LINES is a romantic tragedy that accentuates the very best in contemporary British cinema and seeks to answer an ultimate truth: to whom do we owe loyalty and why?


After the sudden death of his father, a newly-engaged man plunges into a charged love affair with an attached young waitress. Both are searching for happiness and don’t want to give up on their lifelong dreams, but are trapped by their existing responsibilities to the lives they have already created.
