Bill has been supporting his brother's efforts, which involve displays of physical endurance to raise money for a charitable organization for the blind.
In the process, Robbie has become a local hero, while Bill works at a dead-end job at a printing shop when he isn't helping his brother train for the next event.
Aaron sits back in his chair, his arms freshly crossed over his chest, his legs stretched out in front of him and just the most done expression ever. Instantly, the crowd falls silent, an excited buzz running through them.
Chas cannot wait to see the look on his face when he realises what’s happening.“Bachelor No. “Hi, my name is Robert, and I run a haulage company.”Or, a slight AU where Aaron never dated Alex, and Chas is forced to process her feelings about Robert, when she and Charity host a Blind Date-style game at the pub for Valentine’s Day.
That turns out to be vital to the success of the film, which quickly becomes a situational comedy about a scenario in which a little bit of honesty from any of the involved characters probably would resolve the plot in an instant.
Even the brief time Goodhart spends with these characters before the beginning of the plot's conflict is enough to establish the reason that such a quick, simple resolution is impossible for these people.
Lest the setup of "My Blind Brother" begin to sound too inspiring in terms of overcoming physical limitations and sacrificing one's own desires for a loved one, it must be pointed out that neither Bill nor Robbie particularly seem to like each other. He also resents that Robbie uses him as something akin to a guide dog and that no one seems to notice his role in Robbie's efforts.
As for the brother's feelings toward Bill, Robbie gives a big speech after a marathon-length run.
The comedy here goes deeper than the awkward situation or the ways in which Bill and Rose try to hide their recent entanglement from Robbie.
