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?

Critic Reviews for Skeletons

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (3)

A warmhearted, quietly ambitious film.

Jul 2, 2010 | Rating: 3.5/4 | 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…

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

It's decidedly low budget, but sufficiently inventive enough to have won the Michael Powell prize for being the best of British at the Edinburgh Film Festival.

Since the mannered storytelling never really draws us in, we're too often left to contemplate the film's oddity instead of its emotional conflicts.

This surreal and quirky British comedy-drama benefits from strongly resonant performances that help us go along with the absurdist plot.

Audience Reviews for Skeletons

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. . . .
