How do you know what you’re going to see at the cinema next month? You’re busy people – Facebook won’t update itself, and you’ve probably got a relationship to neglect or something. Oh, you haven’t? Sorry. Well, there’s no point in trying to meet another human adult now, you may as well just read this blog.
Oh boy. Charlie St. Cloud may be handsome but he sure is weird. Really intense and looks like he’s going to burst into tears at any moment. And he does. Quite a lot. After the death of his younger brother, Charlie’s sense of responsibility for the fatal accident finds him as a caretaker of the graveyard where his brother is buried. And what does he do for fun? He hangs out with the dead eleven-year-old every day at sunset. Party time!
As self-confessed avoiders of The Mighty Boosh, we weren’t sure how much we were going to enjoy the big-screen debut of the series’ director, Paul King.

Despite the slightly jarring tragic moments at the end of the film and the few plot lulls in the middle, Bunny and the Bull is a lovely way to spend a rainy afternoon.
