A disgraced sports star and gambling addict attempts to turn his life around with the support of his number one fan.

Broke‘s production design is excellent and the cinematography serves the story well. It works well as a feature, and provides enough of a surprise at the end to keep it in the realm of reality. I enjoyed it.” ~Jill Fischer (judge)

“This is a great film with an interesting premise. The acting was awesome—the female lead was very convincing.” ~William Bukowski (judge)

Broke presents an interesting dynamic between the characters. The nominal protagonists who inspire the main character are strangely creepy at times which, when combined with the social capital of an ex-national sports hero, creates a vacillating power relationship between the characters, somewhat novel for films of this type.” ~Nicholas Hauman (judge)

“This film has several excellent moments both in acting and in critique. The musical score and cinematography together make it a very pretty film while also moving it forward.” ~Amanda Hauman (judge)
