Rat is the 2000 comedy drama fantasy from director Steve Barron (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Coneheads). Hubert Flynn (Pete Postlethwaite, In the Name of the Father, The Lost World: Jurassic Park) has had a hard day on his bread delivery round and so, stops off for a pint on the way home to Kimmage ' to wife Conchita (Imelda Staunton, Vera Drake), daughter Marietta (Kerry Condon) and his saintly son Pius (Andrew Lovern). Inevitably one pint becomes a few and he is also under the weather. Daisy Farrell's (Veronica Duffy) expert diagnosis from the snug is Asiatic flu. Back home, with Conchita giving him some of her mind, Hubert wants only to go to bed. But Hubert doesn't have the flu - he metamorphoses into a rat. Initially normality reigns in the Flynn household in this freak circumstance of Hubert as rat. He's a bit picky about his food and the family unsure of rat habits, but widely read Uncle Matt (Frank Kelly) proves expert on all things rodent. But journalist Phelim Spratt (David Wilmot) worms his way into the home with a plan for a book, a film, anything.moreless
