Last rites... and wrongs.

The death of Daniel (Matthew Macfadyen) and Robert's (Rupert Graves) father brings their entire dysfunctional family together to mourn his passing. When a man shows up at the funeral threatening to reveal the deceased man's shocking secret unless he gets some cash, the two brothers are forced to figure out a way to deal with the blackmailer. As they pull out every stop to try and prevent any news from spreading to the guests, the ceremony turns into complete chaos.

Theatrical report

Death at a funeral is like Four weddings and a funeral but without the weddings. It has an ensemble cast featuring the latest "Brit Pack", it has a good poke at modern life, it has black humour, it has delightfully farcical humour, it is unchallenging yet stimulating, it has an ineffectual Englishman. And it has a corpse. What more can you ask for? This is a hilarious film to which you can take your mother and your grandmother.

It even has some climbing white wisteria. Gorgeous!

The black comedy, UK movie Death at a funeral is directed by Frank Oz and stars Matthew Macfayden, Rupert Graves, Alan Tudyk.
