Douglas and the Flour Baby (1997)

Film details


No-one likes Douglas. Then one day he is left holding the baby, but it's not your run-of-the-mill kind of baby...

`A modern day fairy tale set in the unchanged north-eastern coastal town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea. When Douglas, the local misfit, is landed with a sack of flour dressed in a babygro, he suddenly gains the respect and admiration he dreams of. In this quirky tale of differing perceptions, Douglas proudly enters fatherhood.'
