Brian’s best invention… is also his best friend.
Brian and Charles follows Brian, a lonely inventor in rural Wales, who spends his days building quirky, unconventional contraptions that seldom work. Undeterred by his lack of success, Brian attempts his biggest project yet. Three days, a washing machine, and various spare parts later, he’s invented Charles, an artificially intelligent robot who learns English from a dictionary and has an obsession with cabbages. What follows is a humorous and entirely heartwarming story about loneliness, friendship, family, finding love, and letting go.
Brian and Charles is directed by British filmmaker Jim Archer, making his feature directorial debut after making a number of short films and TV gigs previously. The screenplay is written by David Earl and Chris Hayward. Adapted directly from their own 2017 short film previously.
