Gulliver's Bedroom

Gulliver's Bedroom

Gulliver's Bedroom

As a young man reads Gulliver's Travels, he finds comparisons in the book to his own life.

This contemporary take of Jonathan Swift's classic tale of Gulliver's Travels was written and produced by Joe Dawson from Petersfield.

It stars Mark Collier with John Bowen, Fred Simpson, Christophe Vielliard, Rebecca Burke and Ben Kelly also worked on the film.

SHORTLISTED FOR BEST COMEDY 2007

Mark Kermode's comments: "A sprightly, satirical retelling of Gulliver’s Travels within the downbeat surroundings of domesticity.  I particularly liked the duvet sea and the bath-bound storms – and the 'cup of …wee' gag is bound to be a crowd-pleaser."

Pleasant viewing. Loved it. Could this be any better? This is a question I pose. I shall look for the name Joe Dawson in the future. Nice one Joe.

Huw Petermat
This film deserves an A +. I would buy it for sure

George Sandeman
Brilliant. A classic story with a fantastic new twist. Its surely a winner! And what an ending!

Great film, I look forward to more unusual takes on classic stories.

Kim
Classic,great film.It took me back to my student days of fun, but i never worked hard enough to write and produce anything as good as this Joe!

Ed Jackson
Loved it. Original and witty idea. Should be in the running for best comedy. The script had a great fluidity about it. Ace. Saw you produced your own film there Joe. Well done. If you need a producer get in touch.

Julie
This is an imaginative and humourous piece that is very well executed and very pleasant to view. I really admire the original treatment it is entertaining.
