A film by Richard Linklater
Starring: Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine and Matthew McConaughey
In the tiny town of Carthage, Texas, assistant funeral director Bernie Tiede (Jack Black) is one of the town’s most beloved residents. Bernie befriends Marjorie Nugent (Shirley MacLaine), a sour and affluent older widow. Soon Bernie and Marjorie become inseparable and Marjorie becomes very dependent on Bernie, stifling his extroverted personality. When Marjorie is discovered dead Bernie Tiede is charged with murder, to the great surprise of the local community.
From the director of School of Rock and Dazed and Confused comes an off-beat comedy based on real life events that astonished the people of Carthage and made them band together in support of their small-town “hero”. Bernie is the story of everyone’s favourite killer and how he almost got away with murder.
