Death At A Funeral is a movie that stars Matthew Macfadyen, Peter Dinklage, and Rupert Graves. It's an independent, British comedy, and it is hilarious.
When a family's patriarch dies, friends and family of the deceased gather for a final--dignified--farewell. However, one unexpected guest throws a wrench into these plans when he demands compensation for keeping an explosive family secret under wraps. The sons of the deceased are forced to improvise increasingly out of control solutions as one after another of these solutions goes terribly wrong in order to keep this family secret buried--and to preserve the dignity of their father's wake. People and events in this dysfunctional family quickly gather steam and threaten to spin disastrously and hilariously out of control.
This black comedy is the best I've seen since Little Miss Sunshine's dysfunctional family road trip, and I highly, highly recommend you see it. It is available upon request from Annville Free Library.
