Death At A Funeral Synopsis


Death at a Funeral follows the comic twists and turns of a dysfunctional British family as they gather to mourn the passing of their patriarch. It’s the day of his father’s funeral and Daniel wants everything to go according to plan but his brother is only interested in chatting up a pretty girl at the service his cousin’s straight-laced boyfriend is convinced that someone is alive in the coffin and a rogue bottle of hallucinogenic pills keeps popping up. If that isn’t enough a mystery visitor from his father’s past threatens to expose the patriarch's secret unless he is paid a princely sum.
It is up to Daniel to do everything he can to make sure the service goes off without a hitch by holding his oddball family in-line, keeping his father’s secret from leaking to the guests, and finding the darn bottle of pills.

Death at a Funeral is the riotous tale of one man’s struggle to maintain his dignity while swimming in a sea of calamity. The film stars Matthew Macfadyen (Pride & Prejudice), Peter Dinklage (The Station Agent, Elf), Alan Tudyk (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story), Ewen Bremner (Trainspotting, Match Point), Rupert Graves (V for Vendetta) and is directed by Frank Oz (Bowfinger, In & Out).

Frank the Monkey: The Entertainment Guide for Dublin (2006)


Directed By: Brian Kirk

Cast: Matthew Macfayden, Daniel Mays, Eva Birthistle, Gerard McSorley

Reviewed By: Victoria Lock

Banana rating:


The opening scenes of Middletown waste no time in appealing directly to sympathetic emotions, by revealing two younger brothers – one of them sorely mistreated by a demanding and unfair father (McSorley), while the other is praised for his intelligence and declared to have ‘the gift’ required of a man who lives his life serving God.

The simple framing and raw images of a rural Protestant church in a tiny Northern Irish town introduce a complex and dark story. Fifteen years later, Gabriel Hunter (Matthew Macfayden) is due to arrive back in his hometown to replace the now elderly Reverend, after spending most of his life “doing God’s work” abroad. His brother Jim (Daniel Mays), who now works for the family business, is struggling with poverty, trying to support a pregnant wife, and struggles still more for his father’s approval.
