This robust and audience-pleasing British comedy about the meaning of home and family follows a rich London Greek family who lose it all in the latest economic crash. After over-leveraging his latest business venture, self-made millionaire Harry Papadopoulos (Stephen Dillane) finds his assets seized, leaving him with only the derelict fish-and-chip shop that jump-started his career. Forced to reunite with his estranged and freewheeling brother Spiros (Georges Corraface), the two men must set aside their differences to save the Papadopoulos family. Along with Harry's three children, Harry and Spiros 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. As the chip shop begins to thrive, old memories are stirred, romances are forged, and Harry soon discovers that it's only when you lose can you be free to find it all.
Marcus Markou trained as an actor at LAMDA. He has written two plays, Age-Sex-Location (Riverside Studios 2004) and Oridnary Dreams; or How to Survive a Meltdown with Flair (Trafalgar Studios 2009). Papadopoulos & Sons is his first feature-length film.
