Movie Info

If there's something lurking in your closet -- a guilty secret, a past mistake -- on-call emotional exorcists Davis and Bennett can help you out. That is, until their own deeper feelings start to creep forth and interrupt their work. Is Davis 'glow-chasing' -- cannibalising his own past for kicks? Could Bennett be getting in too deep with an alluring new client? And what exactly are the risks of attempting to exterminate the past?

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (14) | Rotten (3)

  • A warmhearted, quietly ambitious film.

    Jul 2, 2010 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • One hesitates to over-praise such a delicate, small-scale work, but Whitfield seems like a major talent.

    Jul 2, 2010 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Balancing oddity and fantasy with real emotions and pain is a difficult trick to pull off. Whitfield has managed it nicely.

    Jul 1, 2010 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Nick Whitfield's directorial debut is a screwy, smart look at the boundaries we draw between our private and public lives, delivered through a darkly funny script steeped in existential fantasy

    Jul 1, 2010
  • A leftfield comedy of the mundane with a sci-fi edge, 'Skeletons' doesn't quite know what to do with its bold ideas.

  • Packed with crisp British humor and touching moments, Skeletons may lose you a few times during some of the trippier memory sequences, but hang in there. Its charm will win you over by the end.

    Thank you Richard for recomending this! An eccentricly Charlie Kaufman-esque award winning gem (Edinburgh festival) that is worth watching, uses large dozes of dry British humour to deliver a strangely heartfelt, and very funny story with a lead duo that can only be compared to Travolta/Jackson in Pulp Fiction.

    Unusual British comedy. Two professional ... well, I'm not sure what the word is for what they are,.... two professional thingys then .... extract skeletons from peoples closets, metaphysically and literally, with the aid of a hummy thing with lights and a comprehensive questionnaire to be completed first by the closet owners. In order to get promotion, they take on a tricky case but it proves more complicated than they expect. Dot dot dot. More giggly than belly-laugh full , with a sweet centre. <img src="http://www.eatsleeplivefilm.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/skeletons3-640x240.jpg"> . . .

    a low budget british effort, which did have a interesting concept at its centre, but it dident hold together for me, and took its time getting into it also
