Storyline

Keith Allen spends some quality time with former child prodigy James Harries and his family. At first sight, they may seem to be a houseful of geniuses, but although every single member has a PhD in Metaphysics, we soon discover that some were purchased from a fake university in the USA, while the others were awarded to them by themselves. As the documentary proceeds, it eerily becomes apparent that this is a family that believes its own mythology. They regard themselves as morally, intellectually, and financially superior to the rest of society, even though the clan (housed in a mock mock-Tudor cottage in the middle of a Cardiff council estate) includes a convicted arsonist, an astral projectionist, a former Bunny Girl, a part-time private detective and a sex-change daughter (James is now Lauren), all of whom seem to live their lives in a parallel universe.

Another documentary that sneers at its subject
23 December 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Harries family are shoddily treated in this film. They don't have great gifts but they are likable enough and Lauren (formerly odd little prodigy James Harries) has had to be tough to deal with others' ignorance - as many people who have had a sex change do. There is an increasing trend in television to humiliate and deceive participants in documentaries and reality shows. Is it the modern-day equivalent of throwing Christians to the lions?

The Harries emerge from this film content in their eccentricity and should be respected for that. Presenter, Keith Allen, on the other hand appears narrow-minded and aggressive.
