Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Though Introducing the Dwights lacks a truly original plot, smart acting rescues scenes verging on slapstick and melodrama. Australian director Cherie Nowlan (The Wedding Party) has assembled a wonderful cast for this comedic drama about two teenage sons struggling for autonomy from their mother. In it, aging comedienne Jean (Brenda Blethyn) reigns over her disabled son, Mark (Richard Wilson) and Tim (Khan Chittenden), who works to win Jean over to his new girlfriend, Jill (Emma Booth). This coming-of-age tale is as much about Blethyn's performance as a single, joke-telling mom as it is about Chittenden and Booth, who portray sexually curious young adults with honesty and humor. True to life, many of the most poignant conversations take place in the living room between mother and children. Whether Tim and Jill come home to mom, drunk and dancing around the living room, or experiment in Jill's bedroom with passionate awkwardness, the scenes in Introducing the Dwights portray a family whose love eternally bonds them. —Trinie Dalton

Product Description

A sexual coming of age comedy about a shy and inexperienced 20 year-old, his raucous comedienne mother, and his assertive, accidentally funny girlfriend.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent, just excellent July 20, 2009
Format:DVD
considering the awful state of american movies today (compared to the explosion of thought-provoking, culture-changing films of the '70s and '80s), thank goodness countries like england and australia still insist on making unique, frightfully well-acted, all-around terrific movies, probably on the same budget hollywood studios use for tom cruise's doughnuts on set. movies like this, and stunners like 'secrets and lies,' 'the last executioner,' 'strange bedfellows'(the hilarious predecessor to adam sandler's flop 'i now pronounce you chuck and larry'), 'ladies in lavender,'and too many more to list now, make movie watching a pleasure again.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Undiscovered Gem July 25, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This funny, touching and thought provoking film is an Australian coming of age film, which surely is one of the best independent films of the past year. When one thinks of a coming of age movie, it typically involves an angst ridden teen, and while the excellent Khan Chittenden plays that role, it is Jean Dwight, portrayed by Academy Award nominee Brenda Blethyn, who truly comes of age. Emma Booth is a revelation, and the earnest and authentic Richard Wilson completes the ensemble cast.

Brenda Blethyn turns in a bravura performance, as a stand up comedienne and single mother, struggling to balance her desire for the footlights with one foot firmly planted in smothering her children's maturation. After seeing this film, and laughing and crying, I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys Australian or British tragicomedies.

I happened to see a movie some time back that introduced me to Brenda Blethyn. She is a joy to watch and I have enjoyed everything I've seen her in since.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Lucky Find ! April 29, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Introducing the Dwights, was one of those Fly around the channels with your remote. Then you stop ... and discover that you have landed in a story that grabs you heart, reminds you of something in your life , or someone you've known.. In any case you stay, you watch, then you start looking for when it will be on again.. Then when you miss it for a while.. you want a copy.. and you find it on Amazon... And the rest is history, or so they say...
