In this house, letting go is never easy.
Brenda Blethyn stars as Jean Dwight, on the down slope of a career as a bawdy and risqué comedienne. Her sons, Tim (Khan Chittenden) and his intellectually disabled brother Mark (Richard Wilson), inhabit a household where chaos is the norm.
Their father (Frankie J. Holden), a one-hit wonder 25 years earlier, works as a security guard and hopes for another break. And so, when Tim meets and falls for gorgeous Jill (Emma Booth), his mum fears that this interloper will "break up" the family, and what was never exactly a stable home environment becomes a combat zone where the two women lock horns for his affections.
"Introducing the Dwights" stars Golden Globe-winning actress Brenda Blethyn (Saving Grace, Little Voice, Secrets and Lies, Lovely and Amazing and Pride and Prejudice), and is directed by Cherie Nowlan (Thank God He Met Lizzie, Marking Time, Small Claims) from a screenplay by Keith Thompson, and produced by Rosemary Blight for Essential Viewing.
The film also features two of Australia's fastest rising stars, Khan Chittenden (The Caterpillar Wish and West) and Emma Booth (Shark Net). The fine ensemble cast includes Australians Richard Wilson, Frankie J. Holden, Rebecca Gibney, Philip Quast, Katie Wall and Russell Dykstra.
