Our last film of the season- and it’s a corker!
The directorial debut from renowned Scottish- born actor Robert Carlyle (The Full Monty) is a darkly comic thriller about a downtrodden, mild-mannered Glaswegian barber whose mundane life is turned upside down when he inadvertently finds himself embroiled in a rash of serial murders.
Carlyle stars as the socially awkward Barney, whose dark fantasies become startling reality after an inadvertent murder. Rather than reporting the incident to the police, Barney turns to his hilariously fierce mother Cemolina (Emma Thompson, Sense and Sensibility, Saving Mr. Banks) for help — but Cemolina has a secret of her own, which leads to a chain of unexpected events.
A dark, bloody (and bloody hilarious) comedy of errors, The Legend of Barney Thomson shows the always wonderful Thompson stealing every scene she’s in as Barney’s indomitable mother, while director and star Carlyle demonstrates that he is just as adept behind the camera as he is in front of it. Deliciously dark and savagely funny, The Legend of Barney Thomson is sure to leave audiences in stitches.
