We are producing the short as part of our course at The London Film Academy, one of the top film schools in London. It is fully funded and will be shot on the top-of-the-line Arri Alexa.

SYNOPSIS
An affluent family is anxiously awaiting the arrival of guests to their daughter’s engagement dinner, as they channel their frustrations and deepest insecurities through harmful and dysfunctional behaviour. An insidious environment of one upmanship, point scoring and power politics plays out as a satirical nightmare of haute-bourgeois, ending in grisly farce.

Luz

Luz is a long suffering, domestic worker with a heart of gold. She is the consistent maternal role for Nicholai, a child marked out for being different, and is desperate to save him from his family - even though she is powerless. Diligent like Moon-gwang, playful like Mrs.Doubtfire, she’s flawed like the titular role of Rosemary’s Baby in that all of Luz's instincts are telling her no, but because of perceived social, racial and gender imbalances she continues to acquiesce.

Female, aged 50 to 70

  • Ethnicity: Aboriginal / Torres Strait Islander, Black / African descent , Chinese, Eurasian / Pan Asian, Indian, Japanese, Korean, Latinx / Hispanic, Pakistani, South Asian, Other

Applications closed 27 January 2020.

Nicholai

Nicholai (playing age 13) is the emotionally neglected youngest child of an affluent family, set apart as different by a pronounced speech impediment. While he relies on domestic worker Luz for emotional support, he heartbreakingly holds the approval of his family in high regard, particularly that of his sister who he is genuinely looks up to. He needs love and respect in order to grow.

Male, aged 18 to 24

Natalia

Natalia is the reluctant matriarch, sculpted and preened with little interest in anyone or anything outside herself. She’s crass, vulgar and moronic, especially when she's drunk. She’s consumed by the desire to see her daughter married well but mainly in terms of how it could advantageously serve her and the family’s status. She’s undoubtedly a monster but she is also a deeply sad and vulnerable monster.

Female, aged 40 to 50

  • Accents: UK English

Esme

Esme is a type A individual, easily wound up but would never get her hands dirty overreacting. She’d happily encourage her enemies to underestimate her beauty and femininity, actively lulling them into a false sense of security while secretly plotting their demise. Like her father, she wants money, power and respect. She hates intimacy, her mother, weakness (particularly in women) and classes anyone who stands in her way, a degenerate.

Female, aged 20 to 30

  • Accents: UK English

Applications closed 27 January 2020.

Ollie

Bullingdon Club politician in the making, Ollie was educated the expensive way and knows his Claret from his Beaujolais. Oscillating between Killing Eve’s Hugo and W1A’s Ollie, he doesn’t always know the answer, but he’d never let on. Esme is his dream girl who provides a sense of security and a certain cultural cache. Her parents are beneath him but he knows the importance of good Personal Relationships.

Male, aged 20 to 30
