A Film4-backed short directed by Kibwe Tavares and starrnig Daniel Kaluuya
A sex comedy very much of its time. The story is set at the end of the 19th century and has Powell as a stern dictatorial father to four sons and authoritarian husband to Dunne. He believes men are in control and receives slavish devotion from Dunne, but in truth, of course, it's really women who get things done. The main narrative concerns the need to get Powell baptized, but there are also sub-plots about the eldest son wearing his father's suit and a visit from an interfering teenage cousin (Taylor).
All in all it's innocuous with infrequent laughs.
