(U.K.) Holy Flying Circus
reimagines the controversy surrounding Monty Python's 1979 film, Life of Brian
, which was greeted with widespread outcry and accusations of blasphemy. Matters reached a head when Michael Palin and John Cleese agreed to take part in a BBC talk show about Life of Brian
with a Church of England bishop and a staunchly Catholic broadcaster. The ensuing TV debate put the Pythons in their most absurd role yet: the voice of reason.
From Oscar®-nominated writer Tony Roche (In the Loop
) and starring Darren Boyd (Little Dorrit
), Charles Edwards (The Shell Seekers
), Tom Fisher (The Illusionist
), and Stephen Fry (Jeeves and Wooster
), this fantastical docudrama is a Pythonesque peek behind the scenes of one of the most notorious-and beloved-films from the legendary troupe.
