About 'Clothes & Blow'

Screened at over 20 film festivals and Winner of 4 Awards, including Best International Short at Dublin Short Film And Music Festival, Clothes & Blow is a comedy/drama for anyone who has ever struggled to be their true self around their family.

 

Written and directed by Sam Peter Jackson (The Bathroom) and starring David Menkin (Florence Foster Jenkins), Nancy Baldwin (Mamma Mia!) and Christy Meyer (Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them).

 

For American voice over artist Daniel (David Menkin), life in London is one long autopilot ride of demanding client calls and awkward Grindr meets. But when his mother Stephanie (Nancy Baldwin) decides to visit from the US with less than 24 hours notice, Daniel is forced to re-evaluate how fully and authentically he is living his life.

Clothes & Blow is now available on DVD, BluRay and digital platforms as part of Peccadillo Pictures' BOYS ON FILM 21: BEAUTIFUL SECRET.

REVIEWS:

 

“Delicious in every regard.” - Stephen Fry

 

“A comedy drama with a trio of strong performances, this is a fun short with real heart.” - The Pink Lens

 

“A lot of comic potential well executed. There is an impressive sense of heart and sentimentality at the core of Clothes & Blow. Jackson teeters on the lines between amusing and heartfelt with a strong handle on the short’s tone.” - Culture Fix UK

 

“An absolute delight! Incredibly funny and so refreshing.” - Rhidixon Blog

 

“Writer-director Jackson packs scenes with hilarious details that add riotous little touches alongside some more pointed moments. And the film's light-handed approach gives it a terrific kick." - Shadows on the Wall

 

“A jolly exploration of the ridiculous role people get stuck in and whether they can overcome themselves.” - Queer Guru

 

"Colourful, light and breezy with a great dynamic among its cast.” - The Sprout
