Things We Want

A black comedy from the teams behind ‘A Kidnapping’, ‘Orphans’, ‘Sans Merci’ and ‘Herding Cats’.

Three adult brothers are living together once again in their childhood apartment, coping with the void left by their parents’ deaths. Drugs, love and new age spirituality consume their search for purpose, until a surprise visit from an upstairs neighbour turns everything upside down and challenges all the brothers thought they believed. A sweet and sour look at the illusions we have about what makes us happy—and what is within our power to change.

Director: Daniel Bradford

Writer: Jonathan Marc Sherman

Featuring: Alex Phelps, William J Holstead, Paddy Young & Hannah Ellis Ryan

A collaboration between Play With Fire and Swaggering Crow Productions.
