“...Pickle has no business being as funny as it is.” -INDIEWIRE Let us reflect on the brief existence of Pickle the fish. Although he could not swim, he was lovingly cared for by a couple that kept him propped up in a sponge. Along with an obese chicken, a cat with a heart condition and a paraplegic possum, his life is a celebration of man’s eternal capacity to care for all creatures. He will be dearly missed. This film chronicles 25 years of Tom and Debbie Nicholson’s unbelievably bad luck with a bevy of rescued animals, from the eponymous Pickle the fish to an entire flock of ill-fated fowl. Directed by Amy Nicholson
