Devon filmmaker Arthur Cauty has made a film that attempts to find out why the UK has such a thirst for booze.
The critically acclaimed 27-year-old filmmaker is an ‘accomplished non-drinker’, and in his film A Royal Hangover he seeks the thoughts of a stellar cast including renowned comedian, actor, author, political firebrand and recovering addict, Russell Brand, to understand the UK’s growing thirst for alcohol.

The documentary will do the international film festival circuit during summer 2014.
According to the A Royal Hangover team: “With Brits now officially drinking more alcohol than tea, A Royal Hangover attempts to get to the bottom of our love for the booze, and what sets us apart from our neighbouring brothers and sisters around Europe, and our cousins across the pond.
“Featuring anecdotes from casual social drinkers, harrowing tales of former addicts, and interviews with charities, healthcare professionals, governing bodies, law enforcement, celebrities and controversial figures such as sacked Government Drugs Advisor Professor Nutt, A Royal Hangover underscores that alcohol is the most harmful drug in the UK.
“Forget the bad weather. Forget the crooked teeth. Forget the quiet, reserved, tea-drinking aristocrat. We are fast painting a new image of Britain: a nation with a drinking problem. Brand leads the orchestra of this established line up, in the hope that one day Britain will wake up without a hangover.”
Strong stuff, and we’re looking forward to it. Follow A Royal Hangover on Facebook.
