The eccentric Flowers family are struggling to hold themselves together. Maurice Flowers (Barratt) is the author of the twisted children's books "The Grubbs", he and his wife Deborah (Colman) are barely together but yet to divorce. As Maurice fights inner demons and dark secrets, she begins to suspect that Maurice is having a homosexual affair with his Japanese illustrator Shun (Sharpe). The couple live in a creepy, creaky, crumbling old house with Maurice's dotty mother Hattie (Hoffman) and their maladjusted twin 25-year-old children Amy (Di Martino) and Donald (Rigby). Both twins are competing for the affections of their attractive neighbour Abigail (Campbell). The Flowers family and their often self-inflicted crises are surrounded by odd neighbours - agents of further headaches and heartache. Written by Mark_a_Wood <markawood@hotmail.co.uk>

Jaw-drop amazing and insanely brilliant
30 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

I'm not sure if this was written specifically with Olivia Colman and Julian Barratt in mind - but they are utterly brilliant and perfect for their roles.

Dealing with dark themes throughout but in an uplifting way that I can't begin to explain, there are crazy surreal moments, tones of infinite sadness, rhythms of tragedy, but also creepy awkwardness and plenty of laughs as well.

The whole story is brilliantly written and directed, and Will Sharpe is an inspiration. I'm speechless at how good this is. Drop whatever you are doing and what the whole thing in one go.
