Dublin Oldschool tells the story of Jason (Emmet Kirwan), a wannabe DJ, on a drug-fuelled trip through the streets of Dublin as he stumbles from one session to another.
Somewhere between the DJs, decks, and drug busts he stumbles across a familiar face from the past, his brother Daniel (Ian Lloyd Anderson).
Daniel, an educated heroin addict, is living on the streets. The brothers haven’t seen or spoken to each other in years but over a lost weekend they reconnect and reminisce over raves, tunes and their troubled past. Two brothers living very different lives might have more in common than they think.
Co-written and directed by IFTA award-winner Dave Tynan, Dublin Oldschool is adapted from the highly successful stage play which won critical acclaim both at home and abroad. Emmet Kirwan and Ian Lloyd Anderson reprise their award-winning stage roles and are joined by an ensemble including Sarah Greene, Seána Kerslake, Mark O’Halloran and Stephen Jones.
Candice longs to escape the boredom of her seaside town, but when a boy she dreams about turns up in real life, she becomes involved with a dangerous local gang, in Northern Irish director Aoife McArdle’s feature debut.
From writer-director Sophie Brooks, The Boy Downstairs is an original romantic comedy about a young woman forced to revisit a former relationship.
