Dummy at LIFF 2009

Dir. Matthew Thompson
Fri Apr 24, 3pm at the Roxy
- Free Tickets

Dummy is a coming of age drama about two brothers whose lives are thrown into turmoil when their mother dies suddenly, leaving them to fend for themselves…
While Danny loses himself in music, sex and drugs, his younger brother Jack takes action – transforming a life-size mannequin, with the help of some make-up and his mother’s old clothes, into a brand new ‘mummy’ for him to talk to.


Jack’s obsession with this new member of the family leads to both comic misunderstanding and bitter antagonism as the pair battle through grief, anger and denial. Finally, the boys’ intense struggle to survive in an upside-down world leads to a new understanding that gives them both hope for the future. .
