Kenny in January
Contender Films have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Kenny on 21st January 2008 priced at £15.99. A runaway box office smash propelled by positive word-of-mouth from cinemagoers in its native Australia, Kenny is described as “a funny, touching and beautifully observed mock documentary straight out of the Christopher Guest (Best In Show; A Mighty Wind) school of filmmaking.”
A cheerfully amusing flush of toilet humour in the most literal sense, Kenny takes as its focus the hero of the title, an affable waste management plumber with a disarmingly infectious enthusiasm for life no matter what it throws at him. The film is co-written by real-life brothers, director Clayton Jacobson and star Shane Jacobson.
Australian Kenny Smyth (Shane Jacobson) is in the sanitation business. Overlooked and ignored, he delivers porta-loos to events across the entertainment spectrum - from festivals to church fetes. He's one of the unsung heroes of the waste management brotherhood, prepared to get down and dirty, taking pride in keeping the wheels of industry moving. Follow Kenny as he juggles the demands of family and filth with his trusty 'splashdown crew', desperately searching for light at the end of the tunnel.
Features include UK Trailer, 'Lifting the Lid' Featurette and 11 Bonus Scenes.
