UPDATE: We have moved this to a bigger screen at the Ritzy and are delighted to announce that Catherine Tate, Brett Goldstein and director Jon Drever will all be there for a post show Q&A.
Robert Kenner is a Peckham Postie who was hit by a meteor. Six years later he has developed super powers and is working with the MOD as their ‘not so secret weapon’ – at least that’s what the jealous US government thinks. How dare the world’s only real superman be British?
And he is very British… whilst he can fly, has heat vision and is indestructible, he is very apologetic and not at all comfortable with the attention. One Tuesday, his officially sanctioned day off, Bob plans a date, his first for many years. Will he find love? Will he find himself? And what does Peckham really think about him?
This is such a refreshing take on the notion of the superhero, given the big blockbuster penchant for macho hero CGI battle-fests. SUPERBOB challenges how we think about ‘power’, who has it, and how we should use it. It also portrays London in a lovingly authentic light.
We love this movie, we love you Bob!
