The somber patriarch of a dysfunctional British family passes away and a man appears claiming to be his gay lover. In this British comedy, the deceased man’s family springs into action to prevent the news of the family scandal from becoming known to the other guests.

The movie is directed by Frank Oz of Sesame Street and Star Wars voice fame. He's also directed The Stepford Wives, The Score and What About Bob?

Among the cast is Matthew Macfadyen, best known to American audiences as Tom Quinn from the BBC TV show MI-5 as well as Rupert Graves, recently seen in V for Vendetta. Also cast is Alan Tudyk from Firefly and Serenity, who if you read this site with any regularity you will know is a huge favorite of ours. (D. James Ruccio/BOP)
