Rufus Norris' 'Broken' Leads British Independent Film Awards Nominations

With nine nods, Rufus Norris’ Cannes Critics’ Week opener Broken leads the nominees for this year’s Moët British Independent Film Awards. Studiocanal is releasing Broken in the UK – although it has not yet been dated – and Film Movement has it domestically. The coming-of-age drama stars Tim Roth, Cillian Murphy and Rory Kinnear, who all received acting nods. Also scoring multiple shout-outs are Ben Wheatley’s comedy Sightseers and Peter Strickland’s horror film Berberian Sound Studio with seven each and Bart Layton’s The Imposter with six. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel also has a strong showing with nods for best film and director along with acting nominations for Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Tom Wilkinson. The 15th BIFAs will be handed out on December 9 in London. The full list of nominees follows:
