‘Papadopoulos & Sons’ Gets US Premiere at Palm Springs Film Festival

still_10Marcus Markou’s “Papadopoulos & Sons” is getting its U.S. premiere at this week’s Palm Springs International Film Festival.

The feel-good comedy is about a reversal of fortune as a rich London Greek family lose it all in the latest economic crash.

Over-leveraged on his latest business venture, self-made millionaire Harry Papadopoulos (Stephen Dillane) reluctantly reunites with Spiros (George Corraface), his estranged freewheeling brother, to re-open the abandoned Three Brothers Fish & Chip Shop they shared in their youth. Alongside Harry’s children, they set about bringing the shop back to life under the suspicious gaze of Hassan, the neighboring Turkish kebab shop owner whose son has his eyes on Harry’s daughter, Katie.

Harry struggles to regain his lost business empire, but as the chip shop returns to life, old memories are stirred and he discovers that it’s only when you lose everything that can you be free to find it all.

“Papadopoulos & Sons” won the Audience Award at the Thessaloniki Film Festival.
