Brian and Charles follows Brian, a lonely inventor in rural Wales, who spends his days building quirky, unconventional contraptions that seldom work. Undeterred by his lack of success, Brian attempts his biggest project yet. Three days, a washing machine, and various spare parts later, he's invented Charles, an artificially intelligent robot who learns English from a dictionary and has an obsession with cabbages. What follows is a humorous and entirely heartwarming story about loneliness, friendship, family, finding love, and letting go.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Brian and Charles is a quirky British comedy about a lonely man who builds himself a robot friend. It has a lot of heart and a main character with an infectious, blissful outlook on life. Brian (David Earl) never gives up, and when things don't go his way -- which is the majority of the time -- he's always able to pick himself up and try again. He's also brave, standing up to those who bully others, and demonstrates humility, perseverance, and ingenuity. The film can be a little sad at times, and the scenes that deal with bullying can be a bit intense. But there are also slapstick-like scenes/ Language is mild ("bloody," "prat"), and there's a small peck on the cheek. Characters occasionally smoke cigarettes.
