Description by OLDIES.com:
My Brothers is the directorial debut of Paul Fraser (Dead Mans Shoes). Set over Halloween weekend of 1987. My Brothers is the story three young brothers' quest to replace their dying father's watch. Noel (Timmy Creed): 17, serious, weighed down by responsibility, Paudie (Paul Courtney): 11, cocky, not too bright and dreams of playing in goals for Liverpool, and Scwally (TJ Griffin): 7, na?ve and obsessed with Star Wars. Using a battered bread van, the brothers embark on a journey across the wild Irish landscape on the Halloween weekend, grinding gears and screaming at each other to get to an arcade machine in Ballybunion. Along the way they are detoured by escalating brotherly battles in an offbeat and moving journey that can only lead them home. Kate Ashfield and Don Wycherley co-star as mom and dad.
A sudden family crisis sends three siblings off on an adventure in this comedy-drama set in working-class England in 1987. Noel (Timmy Creed) is the oldest of three bothers living with their ailing father. Noel and his siblings -- eleven-year-old Paudie (Paul Courtney), who is quick with a joke and dreams of playing professional football some day, and seven-year-old Scwally (T.J. Griffin), who is shy and fascinated with STAR WARS even though he hasn't actually seen the film -- are all having a hard time dealing with the knowledge that their father has only a short time to live. When Dad falls asleep, Noel takes off his watch for safekeeping, but when he gets in a fight the timepiece is broken beyond repair. Though the watch was just a cheap digital model, it was Dad's most prized possession, won at an amusement park in Ballybunion; Noel doesn't want Dad to know what happened, so he "borrows" a bread truck from a neighbor and sets off for Ballybunion to find a replacement. Since he hurt his hand in the fight, Noel brings Paudie along to help him work the gear shift, and Scwally is allowed to tag along so he won't tell on his brothers; the brothers see plenty of sights have some unexpected adventures along the way as they look for the watch and come to terms with their father's illness. MY BROTHERS was the firs feature film from screenwriter Paul Fraser.
