Is the screen broken or the case? A screen is fairly easy to replace. If the case back is broken, you'll pay a lot for the top half.

I'm not familiar with a Macbook hinge, but I repair laptops at work. The screws that go from the hinge to the bottom half of the laptop sometimes come loose. To get to these you usually have to remove the top bezel (above the keyboard). You can tighten these unless the screw has stripped the hole that they go into. If that happens you can super glue the screw into the hole (been there done that). If the hinge itself is broken, you can try eBay or Google for Apple laptop parts and see what you get.

If you're still under warranty, take it to an Apple Store and play dumb
Sometimes they will fix minor problems like this on the spot
