Phil Deguara and James Groom star in British feature film Magpie screening at the Bradford International Film Festival
Magpie is an independent film about an absent young father who returns to town in order to attend his 9 year old son’s funeral. His glaring failure as a parent makes his presence an unwelcome one, especially with the boy’s mother who struggles with her loss and the lack control she has over the funeral arrangements. After drunkenly stealing the coffin both parents find themselves on the road with two friends. What follows is a journey with no destination… just a desperate desire not to return.
Screening 18th April 2013
