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.

Great movie by a great director
30 May 2013 | by auralis123See all my reviews

This is a story about a weird house and the weird family, two parents, two boys and two girls, who grew up there. It's a large, beautiful, but run down country house with acres of land. Their dead dad - James Jones, was an inventor who made something that made him a lot of money, so he bought a big house and had a big family. Unfortunately, although he invented many more things, nothing ever made any money after the first big payoff. His inventions became more and more weird and imaginative, but he just couldn't get it right. The family come together for the bereavement and this is where the intriguing plot happens. Great film
