Storyline

When failed inventor James Jones (Paul Freeman) dies in a laboratory accident, his estranged children return to the family estate to settle his affairs. They each bring their own baggage: Eloise (Claira Watson Parr) has never recovered from the loss of her mother and brother, and cant find a lasting job or relationship. Yossarian (Ben Shockley) is a presenter on a bad daytime TV show. Suki (Nicola Goodchild) has always been the practical one, and she takes out her ill humor on her timid spouse, Colin (Jonathan Hansler). The only thing the siblings seem to share is their guilt over abandoning their father seven years ago, when he accidentally killed their brother Tom (David Wayman). A lawyer (David Acton) hired by their shady Uncle Simon (Linal Haft) informs the siblings that their father had borrowed against the house for his last experiment, and that his estate belongs to the bank.

Plucky filmmaking sadly makes for poor watch
7 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I caught this at the London Sci-Fi Festival with high expectations. It was the opening film and the stills looked interesting. Sadly the film was seriously poor, like it had been made out of old milk cartons and stitched together for an audience's benefit. It wasn't clear whether it was a comedy, or a mystery film, or a family drama. The script was really poor - very confusing and unsure what it was. The camera work was often OK but not the acting. Poor special effects belied no budget. A weird cast which seemed to lean towards ample-busomed ladies over acting skills. How anyone could give this 10 star I do not know. I give it 2 stars for putting the film together independently, but none for the watch. Hopefully the filmmakers will have learned from their experience and do something better in future. If not they should stick with the dayjobs.
