Review: 'Funeral Kings' is a confident coming-of-age debut from McManus Brothers

10 March 2012 7:55 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Coming of age stories depend upon authenticity if they are to have any power whatsoever.  I've certainly seen enough phony versions of a young man's first steps into a larger world to know when something rings true and when it doesn't.  The strength of "Funeral Kings," the debut feature of Kevin and Matthew McManus, is that it evokes a sustained emotional state that perfectly captures life at a certain age, straining against everyone else's definition of you, in a way that suggests these are filmmakers worth watching.

Funeral Kings Trailer. Kevin McManus, Matthew McManusFuneral Kings (2012) movie trailer stars Kevin Corrigan, Michaela McManus, Sarah Baldwin, Dylan Hartigan, and Eric Rollins. Funeral Kings‘ plot synopsis: “It’s always a good day for a funeral at St. Mark’s Middle School.

Eventually their irreverent personalities will put them in a situation that is too big for them to handle.”

This coming-of-age film will remind the viewer of the UK TV show Skins in its in-your-face portrayal of teens and adolescents.
