Brian and Charles follows Brian, a lonely inventor in rural Wales, who spends his days building quirky, unconventional contraptions that seldom work. Undeterred by his lack of success, Brian attempts his biggest project yet. Three days, a washing machine, and various spare parts later, he’s invented Charles, an artificially intelligent robot who learns English from a dictionary and has an obsession with cabbages.

What follows is a humorous and entirely heartwarming story about friendship, family, finding love, and letting go.

Director: Jim Archer

4 Stars

"Happiness, loneliness and silliness come together in this startling emotional adventure"

The Guardian, Peter Bradshaw

4 Stars

"Made with genuine affection and innately British whimsy, this is really just an odd-couple comedy about two lonely blokes — one of whom has a “washing machine for a tummy”."

Empire, John Nugent
