Funeral Kings

It’s always a good day for a funeral at St. Mark’s Middle School. Andy and Charlie, two altar servers, don’t just get to miss class anytime a parishioner kicks the bucket, they cut out early and play hooky as soon as the service is over. Eventually their irreverent personalities will put them in a situation that is too big for them to handle.

REVIEWS

“A raggedy but refreshing yarn about the near-terminal condition known as male adolescence.” – Variety, John Anderson

“…Funeral Kings is an excellent first effort from the Mcmanus brothers. It’s tough not to fall for these little jerks.”                         – heebmagazine.com, Jonathan Poritsky

“The brothers behind Funeral Kings obviously had a much different childhood than I did, but their film is able to tap into some universal truths about “misfit youth,” and it presents them with an impressive amount of truth, restraint, and humor.”                  – twitchfilm.com, Scott Weinberg
