Gordon Bennett

Synopsis

Gordon is about to be 40. Perhaps it's time to grow up. A musical comedy from the streets of Hackney.
 
Gordon Bennett is a small time drug dealer who bypasses the normal responsibilities of a working man and father. He drifts through life like a puff of marijuana smoke on a summer breeze. His saving grace are a romantic imagination coupled with an optimistic belief that his life will get better.

Over the forty-eight hours that take him to the night of his fortieth birthday his optimism is mangled by a series of events instigated by friends, family and fate, coincidences that should make him change his life for good.
 
The film begins with a council tax dispute and ends with a stabbing on a council estate pavement, via a scheming father, a burglarising ex-wife, a custom dream car, two Danish junkies, half a kilo of coke in a goldfish bowl, three singing villains with varying degrees of psychosis, a very bad trip, a mysterious stripper, a disappearing boat on the River Thames and far too much marijuana.
