Wacky and wonderful
30 April 2019 | by fiachwhiteSee all my reviews

I caught this in the Irish cinemas. Great cast especially youngster Lewis MacDougall and Michael Smiley, mad story, like no Irish film I've ever seen before. It's a slow burner but it really takes off as the story progresses towards the climax. Really impressive cinematography and sound design. Would definitely recommend if you're interested in seeing an alternative slice of the new wave of Irish cinema.
