dead cool is the story of modern family relationships, as seen through the eyes of 15 year-old David. Six years after his dad dies in a car crash, David's mum moves in with the new man in her life. As the two families come together - complete with teenage step brothers and sisters, a crushingly acerbic granny and one feisty, American self-help guru ex-wife - David has fantasies of his father's ghost returning to disrupt the new step-family and test its survival.Written by
This was a really enjoyable feel good movie with a good British feel about it. The cast is its main sell though. Rosanna Arquette (Pulp Fiction, Desperately Seeking Susan) glows on screen as Diedre a self help guru, whilst Imogen Stubbs (Sense and Sensability, Twelfth Night) James Callis (Bridget Jones I & II) and Liz Smith (The Royle Family, Vicar of Dibley) play a close knitted a very funny family. Check out Liz's bad wig! The film is centred around Steven Geller (Bootleg, Mike & Angelo), a very talented young actor who I'm sure we will be seeing a lot more of in the future. He plays a complex and demanding David exceptionally well, and in my opinion carries the movie. Overall I look forward to the DVD release, and would recommend Dead Cool to everyone.
