Irish Film Awards Winner, Best Film and Best Actress

14A, very strong language, mature content.
Dir: Darren Thornton.
Ireland, 2016, 82 min.
Seána Kerslake, Carolyn Bracken, Denise McCormack.

“Darren Thornton’s refreshingly affecting yet sparklingly funny debut feature showcases exactly why Irish film-making and talent is stronger than ever… a beautifully crafted coming-of-age-tale… Seána Kerslake leads the way as ‘Mad’ Mary McArdle, who returns to Drogheda after a short spell in Mountjoy for a vicious attack on a girl in a local nightclub… With three weeks before her long-time friend walks down the aisle, Mary becomes determined to bring a plus one… An exquisitely written, delicately made and superbly acted gem that will only get better with age and reflection.” —Laura Delaney, RTÉ

“A canny blend of biting comedy and soulful drama” —Seattle Times
