Directed by: Tom Kingsley, Will Sharpe
Staring: Chris Langham, Simon Amstell and Amanda Hadingue
Made on a miniscule budget this very British film follows a dysfunctional family whose otherwise mundane existence is spun in to disarray when they are accused of murder.
Tom Thompson was taking his dog for a walk when he comes across Blake. Sympathetic, he invites the stranger back to his home for a hot meal. However during the course of the dinner Blake suddenly dropped dead. Months later, a friend of the family relays the story to his therapist who immediately leaks it to the press. In no time, the Thompsons gain a notorious reputation as the “Family of Killers”. What unfolds is a subtle and surprisingly moving black comedy that strikes a careful balance between solid laughs and sinister undertones.
