I’m afraid this isn’t going to be much of a personal blog today, but I just have to rave about this movie I watched the other night. It’s called A Dog’s Breakfast, and it is the brainchild of actor David Hewlett of Stargate Atlantis. He wrote, directed and starred in this little indie film, and he managed to get his friends from the set and his own sister to star in it for free! It’s an absolutely hilarious movie; a comedy (obviously) but also kind of morbid.
Here’s the blurb on the back of the DVD case:
“When Marilyn (Kate Hewlett), a successful make-up artist for a hit TV series, brings home the show’s star Ryan (Paul McGillion), to announce their engagement, it catapults her already obsessive brother Patrick (David Hewlett) over the edge. And when Patrick learns that Ryan is out to murder his sister, he plots to give the actor the axe – or something sharper. But Patrick bungles the perfect crime, things spin out of control, and soon, the family’s sanity has gone to the dogs.”
