Sundance 2022: “Brian and Charles” Plugs into Trend of Robot Friends

A collaboration between director Jim Archer and multi-hyphenates David Earl and Chris Hayward, who co-wrote the movie and also stars in it, Brian and Charles recently enjoyed its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition section. A whimsical, amiable cinematic hangout that connects best with fans of Flight of the Conchords and What We Do in the Shadows, the movie unfolds in a mockumentary style chronicling the relationship peaks and valleys between a man and his robot creation, who achieves unlikely sentience but soon begins to chafe at the frustrations of life in their small Welsh town.
