The Ordinary Reasonable Man (2009)

Our film is an exploration of that contentious curiosity of law; the principle of the ‘ordinary reasonable person’ functioning as a measuring-stick by which the common standards of society are gauged. The film parodies the imaginary objectivity of this arguably middle-class, male and outdated concept. Is such a man so ordinary, decent and rational that he has now become ludicrously abnormal? Reginald Toff is the actual original historical man on the Clapham Omnibus. Astute students of Defamation and Trademark Law can find ten different hidden references throughout the film to the case authorities for each principle narrated by the psychiatrist.
