In Memory Of My Father

Sunday 13th July 2008

Having garnered four star reviews in Empire, Maxim, Film Review and Eye For Film during its UK theatrical release in June, Christopher Jaymes' black comedy In Memory Of My Father comes to DVD on 1st September 2008 courtesy of Scanbox Entertainment.

Having garnered four star reviews in Empire ("The likeably unlikeable ensemble cast is uniformly excellent."), Maxim ("So funny and so ridiculous you'll be weeping tears of joyous blood."), Film Review ("Laugh out loud… hugely enjoyable.") and Eye For Film ("Sharp dialogue, delivered with beautiful comic timing...") during its UK theatrical release in June, Christopher Jaymes' black comedy In Memory Of My Father comes to DVD on 1st September 2008 courtesy of Scanbox Entertainment.

Written by, directed by and starring Christopher Jaymes (It's Alright Ma, I'm Only Trying), the film is a deliciously twisted examination of a narcissistic Hollywood family struggling to deal with the fallout caused by the death of its patriarch.

Winner of multiple awards on the festival circuit, including the Grand Jury Award at the CineVegas International Film Festival and the Festival Award at the San Diego Film Festival, the film boasts an excellent ensemble cast that includes Jeremy Sisto (Waitress), Judy Greer (Elizabethtown; I Love Your Work), Matt Keeslar (Art School Confidential), Monet Mazur (Stoned) and Meadow Sisto (Ted Bundy), and further benefits from a superb soundtrack by indie music veterans Belle and Sebastian.

In a mansion in modern day Los Angeles, Chris (Jaymes), the youngest son of a self-proclaimed legendary Hollywood producer has been bribed by his dying father into documenting his death and its aftermath on video. Dad's passing brings to the house a gathering of close friends and relatives, including Chris' two older brothers - middle son, Jeremy (Sisto), and eldest, Matt (Keeslar). Also among those present are Meadow (played by Meadow Sisto), the brothers' cousin (who, due to the marriage between their divorced mother and their father's brother, is also their stepsister), and their father's eccentric, shopaholic lover, Judy (Greer).

As the mournful occasion progresses, unchecked emotions come to the fore. Jeremy finds himself forming a narcotically induced, homoerotic bond with Meadow's boyfriend, Eric (Eric Michael Cole), while Judy chooses to deal with her grief first by talking to the corpse of her lover and then having sex with Matt on the bedroom floor. And that's just the start of a long day that's destined to become as "legendary" as the man it's intended to honour.
