Product Description

Details: Brought together by their mother's death, four siblings of a Catholic working class family are propelled into a comical nightmare of absurd mishaps and bittersweet mayhem.

During a violent rainstorm, the three Flynn brothers and their wheelchair-bound sister gather on the eve of their dear mum's funeral to cope with their tragic loss. Each sibling, weathering the storm in their own peculiar way, retreats to a different world in their dark hometown of Glasgow where anything might, and does, happen.

In the tradition of Gillies MacKinnon's Small Faces, Scottish writer-director Peter Mullan's debut film is a powerful human drama about a dysfunctional family on the verge of self-destruction.  Awarded Best Film at the 1998 Venice Film Festival, Orphans looks honestly at one family's grief and their unusual journey to redemption.
