066: SFFCH – Orphans

066 Orphans SF

This time the chosen movie for ‘Spoiler Filled Film Conversation Hooray’, is ‘Orphans’ from 1998. It’s by Peter Mullen, set in Glasgow, and is a British movie so expect some bleakness even in this comedy. Well, Rich chose it and says it’s a comedy so it must be! Join Rich and Abi and they chatter on about this subtle dark comedy, and its narrative encompassing the events surrounding the death of an elderly mother and the activities of her four orphaned adult children on the night before her funeral. Along the way, they also explain the Welsh word ‘twp’ and wonder just what was going on in that pub! (Ep 66, Rec 2014)
