Crackers    (DVD)

Larceny, adultery, sabotage and treachery, yes, just your typical Christmas with the Dredge family. Twelve-year-old Joey Dredge is in trouble again. Expelled for jumping off the school roof, he's haunted by his fathers death and hates his mothers' new boyfriend and his bullying son. Compounding his misery is the knowledge he has to spend Christmas with them at the family beach house. Things look grim until the unexpected arrival of great-grandfather Albert, fresh from a stint in prison. Forced to share the back shed with this swearing, farting and devious octogenarian, Joeys' life changes. Between barbequing the family dog, performing a self-burial and causing his intended step-father to consume a startling amount of hash, Joey learns a few life lessons from Albert, who despite his many vices may give Joey the strength to accept the past and embrace the future.

Director/Writer David Swann has always been intrigued by the ritual of Christmas; the yearly group of individuals, often feigning unconditional love despite unresolved angst. His own memories recall friends of his parents inebriated and larger than life; burnt turkey, furtive fondling, buried rage, claret-stained tongues, stuffing, stuffing and more stuffing, punch-ups and pudding, old stories, new laughs and history repeating like bad curry.

Crackers is a pot pourri of all these things: its a riotous comedy about urban warfare, and its survivors, at the Christmas dinner table.
