    Andy and Charlie lead a good life — to the detriment of the dead. Each time a poor soul bites the dust, these two teens act as altar boys at the deceased's funeral. Entirely dressed in white, they assist the priest in more boring ceremonies during which they can hit on girls, drink sacred wine and, especially, cut class.

    Once the stiff's party is over, going back to school is out of the question. Rather, it's time to roam the streets without fear of being caught. While they may belong to the church, Andy and Charlie are far from being choir boys. They're floating on flawless happiness until David, their new colleague, shows up. A mama's boy who understands nothing of their life philosophy, they'll have to do whatever it takes to set him on the right track. That's when the craziness begins.

    Having discovered that David isn't as square as he first appeared, the diabolical duo get their hands on a mysterious suitcase of unknown contents and find themselves in the middle of a scheme orchestrated by a neighbourhood delinquent. Nothing in the world, however, can stop them from doing whatever they can to try to impress girls. Teenage boys do have their priorities, after all.

    Beware, love at first sight! The McManus brothers' FUNERAL KINGS is exactly the type of comedy that puts a smile on your face and keeps it there for the entire picture. Impossible not to fall under the charm of this suburban saga that's filled with heartwarming characters everyone can easily relate to. Weaving from the essence of memory, the filmmakers have captured with unequaled precision the naive beginning of adolescence when one dreams of being an adult but is unwilling to grow up. Fueled by deliciously vulgar dialogue spoken by charismatic rookies, this first feature overflows with situations as chaotic as they are wacky, thought up by a very talented comic duo.

    Beyond the laughter can be found a touching drama about a friendship put to the test, one that has judiciously been compared to STAND BY ME. Produced by Fantasia regular Andrew van den Houten (THE WOMAN), FUNERAL KINGS marks the arrival of two directors who'll soon be dethroning Greg Mottola, the creator of SUPERBAD.

     ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Hamlet. From Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London, a handful of players perform this timeless classic. Hamlet explores political intrigue and sexual obsession, philosophical reflection ("to be, or not to be…") and violent action, tragic depth and wild humor. Capturing the youthful and less jaded aspects of Hamlet's personality rarely seen in more traditional interpretations, in just two and a half hours, this production embraces the theatre of Shakespeare's day. Actors play multiple characters and live music, infusing the performance with a lively energy. Humorous and boisterous, the Globe Company packs an emotional wallop with their inherent theatricality.

    In this adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by John Steinbeck, the Joad family has lost everything: their home, livelihood, dignity and nearly all hope for a better future. With what little remains, the family leaves the Dust Bowl fields of Oklahoma for the fertile lands promised in California. Expecting the land of milk and honey, the Joads face further disillusionment, exploitation, and a lack of resources at the hands of big business and corrupt authorities.
