Storyline

At a late-night meeting with nine colleagues, James, an executive of some sort, wants action to avoid their potential loss of millions of pounds daily. He throws a tantrum when one man, Bill, urges caution instead of action. Jim leaves the meeting and, while driving to his office, has a mobile phone conversation with Bill. Something unexpected happens and Bill suddenly has a great deal of leverage. A power play ensues, and things become clearer at press conference the next morning. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Intense short film - and brilliant performance from Richard E. Grant

'Always Crashing in the Same Car' is an intense short film, featuring, Richard E. Grant and Paul McGann. (The two actors re-teaming up for the first time since the cult classic 'Withnail & I' that helped each of them get their breaks in the business.) Written and directed by Duncan Wellaway. Produced by Zoe Ball.

At just under 12 minutes in length, 'Always Crashing in the Same Car' packs in quite a lot.

Before seeing this short film, I felt Richard E Grant was a somewhat underrated actor before seeing this short film. Now I am sure he is seriously underrated! Grant delivers a brilliant performance here!

I'm not very familiar with much of McGann's work, but he is good in this.

There is an interesting twist, of sorts, once you've seen the film in full. And it makes you wonder, but I won't say anymore, as that would give it away.

Definitely worth watching.
