Meet Brian —a lonely, luckless inventor who takes on his most ambitious project yet. Enter Charles —Brian’s extraordinary masterpiece – an artificially intelligent robot made from odds and ends, including an old washing machine, who has an inexplicable obsession with cabbages. Together, Brian and Charles is a heartwarming and entertaining tale about friendship, family, finding love, and letting go.

A breakout hit at the Sundance Film Festival, this is Archer’s feature directorial debut after cutting his teeth shooting comedy sketches with friends before writing and directing several short films culminating in winning gold at the Young Director Awards in Cannes for the short film version of Brian and Charles.

The magic that Brian and Charles taps into is handwrought and underplayed, with Archer letting the weird details cast a low-key glow. The Hollywood Reporter

Quirky British Mockumentary... Jim Archer’s modest charmer genially honors the human need for meaningful connection. Variety
