We put the fun in funeral…
A big-screen comedy about a straight-laced lawyer who fakes her best friend’s funeral to try to save her from a psychopathic drug dealer.
Good Grief is a broad-appeal comedy with a big heart. It is unashamedly commercial, with its theme of self-empowerment, combined with a heart-warming buddy story and a poignant romance.
As a comedy, this movie will perform best in English-speaking markets, specifically North America. Theatrical release is a highly competitive platform, so our key strategy is to cast up-and-coming stars in the leading role, surrounded by talented comic actors recognisable from TV comedy in the USA and Australia.
Comedy and romance are traditionally big hits in home entertainment and on pay/cable TV, two ancillary markets where this movie promises to recoup well.
