LOWELL -- Independent Film Night at the Pollard Memorial Library, 401 Merrimack St., presents "Broken," a film by Rufus Norris on Thursday, April 10, at 6:30 p.m., in the Ground Floor Meeting Room.

"Broken," based on the novel of the same name by Daniel Clay, tells the story of 11 year-old Skunk, who lives a carefree life with her loving father (Tim Roth), brother and nanny. One day, Skunk witnesses her angry neighbor, Mr. Oswald savagely beat Rick, a psychologically-troubled young man who lives across the street. Skunk's innocence begins to vanish as her home, neighborhood and school all become treacherous environments where the happy certainties of childhood give way to fear-filled doubt.
