Film of the day: Brian and Charles

Brian and Charles

Brian, a lonely inventor in rural Wales, spends his days building quirky, unconventional contraptions that seldom work.

Undeterred by his lack of success, Brian attempts his biggest project yet. Three days, a washing machine, and various spare parts later, he’s invented Charles, an artificially intelligent robot who learns English from a dictionary and has an obsession with cabbages.

What follows is a humorous and entirely heart-warming story about friendship, family, finding love, and letting go. Stars David Earl, Chris Hayward, Louise Brealey and Nina Sosanya.

Brian and Charles – Available to rent on Sky Store from Monday 26 September.
