Door handles are probably broken, these handles are known to break, my driver side door has broken twice and the passenger side once.

You won't be able to open it from the outside. If your really desperate you can break the plastic handle apart to get to the rod inside the door that opens it. You have to replace it anyways so it wouldn't be so bad. I don't see why you can't get in threw the trunk. If you have the keys you shouldn't have any issues with it opening
