Matt Berry and Nigel Planer star in new short film Sleigh.
Formerly successful rock band The Kindness are trying to record a Christmas song for their comeback single. It’s the height of summer, tempers are fraying and obnoxious lead singer Rob (Aidan Casey) and his dad Gerald, the officious Bishop (Nigel Planer), aren’t helping. So, with the aid of port, cheese and swearing, it’s up to long-suffering manager Martin (Matt Berry) to save the day.
Sleigh is directed by John Panton and co-written with David Quantick (Veep). It also includes a song, Everybody’s Coming Home (It’s Christmas!), written specially for the film by Elbow. Sleigh is set to be released in December.
Here are two posters featuring Matt and Nigel…
