Festival year: 2017
Joe Ahearne (guest director for Doctor Who) puts a gay spin on the British murder mystery genre. Like the popular television series Midsomer Murders and Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple, B&B takes place in a rural village that seems quaint enough on the surface, but becomes more eerie and frightening as the action builds. Protagonists Mark and Fred are newly married husbands who return to a bed-and-breakfast after a lengthy court battle with the establishment’s homophobic owner. What begins as a demonstration of their equal rights, turns into an entangled whodunnit, forcing Mark and Fred to face off with a mysterious Russian stranger, the B&B owner’s closeted son, and a cruising park full of anonymous men.
