Charlie The Splendid

2013, 30 minutes

sci-fi comedy

The year is 1984. The city is Manchester. Margaret Thatcher is in power and unemployment is on the rise. Hard times are nigh. A foreign species is sending a soldier on a mission to Mother Earth in order to gather intelligence on human life, as well as a specimen. Branded with the name Albert Charlie Johnson, the young and naïve 'Charlie' is given a daunting mission where the future of his planet rests on his shoulders. At 12am on a hot summer's night, amidst the horrors of the big city at night, Charlie arrives on Earth. Thus, his mission begins. Much to his delight, he comes across a group of young renegades named 'The Mensheviks', led by their mysterious and influential leader, Domino. The Mensheviks take Charlie under their wing and attempt to mould him into a rebel. But as he gets more and more involved with this eclectic gang, Charlie's mission and his own safety start to become more and more hazy. In the vein of films such as The Terminator, Bad Taste, Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The Wanderers, Charlie The Splendid is a sci-fi fish-out-of-water comedy and a study of machismo.
