A Shocking Accident is a short feature based on a Graham Greene story starring Rupert Everett and Jenny Seagrove. Directed and adapted by James Scott. Academy Award winner for Best Live Action Short Film in 1983. Run length 25 min.

Jerome Weathersby is informed by his headmaster that his father, a travel writer, has been killed in a Naples street accident – hit by a pig which fell from a collapsing fifth floor balcony. Jerome’s schooldays immediately darken; fellow pupils taunt him, and he grows into an inhibited chartered accountant. When his Aunt Joyce regales a prospective girlfriend, Amanda, with details of the shocking accident, Amanda responds with raucous laughter. But a later girlfriend, Sally, shares Jerome’s unsentimental viewpoint: “What happened to the pig?” she asks. A happy future seems assured.
