Two brothers, one mother, three dads.

Eaten By Lions tells the heart-warming story of half-brothers Omar (Antonio Aakeel) and Pete (Jack Carroll), who were raised by their Grandma after their parents were tragically killed by lions in a bizarre accident. When their beloved Gran passes away, they embark on a life-changing journey to find Omar's birth father. What follows is a funny and touching journey of self-discovery for both boys... in Blackpool.

The Choudray family represent a truly contemporary example of modern multicultural Britain, but what will the brothers make of their eccentric newfound family? This is a charming tale of one boys search for his biological father and his own sense of identity, and the unexpected ways in which friendships and a sense of belonging are formed in a modern society.

The film stars some of Britain’s best-loved comedians alongside budding British acting talent including Blackpool’s very own Hayley Tamaddon (Coronation Street, Emmerdale) in her big screen debut. The award-winning film stars Screen International’s 2018 ‘Star of Tomorrow’ Antonio Aakeel (City of Tiny Lights, Tomb Raider), BAFTA & Emmy award-winning Asim Chaudhry (Black Mirror, People Just Do Nothing), Britain’s Got Talent’s Jack Carroll, Johnny Vegas (Still Open All Hours, Benidorm), Kevin Eldon (Game of Thrones, Hot Fuzz) and Vicki Pepperdine (Getting On, Camping).  

This showing will be introduced and have a Q&A by director Jason Wingard, who says “Our film is a nostalgic love letter to Blackpool. It is where both writers came for childhood holidays and where the film is set so we celebrate the town on the big screen. The film was written with Jack Carroll and Asim Chaudhry in mind. Both are fantastic comic performers and we knew right away we wanted them in the film.”
