Scottish Bob

If you enjoyed Muriel’s Wedding and Priscilla, Queen of the Desert then you will most probably enjoy this. You know what it’s like with some families. One dies and then the vultures appear flying round the casket not so much in search of meat but money.  So is the case with this Australian family: when the only daughter dies in an unfortunate road accident her errant brother Bob turns up at the funeral with an old phone but a new accent.

This is a dark comedy about the absurdity of greed and how far some relatives are prepared to go, to get what they believe they are entitled. It was written and directed by Darren McFarlane of Head Space entertainment, based in Melbourne Australia.
