FILMS FROM THE UK, IRELAND, AUSTRALIA, INDIA, SOUTH AFRICA AND NEW ZEALAND
February 15-22, 2024
A feature film debut for co-star Patrick Kiety and director Prasanna Puwanarajah, this film is nothing less than a revelation. A superb Seana Kerslak co-stars as Eileen, who, instead of her planned successful life in London, has returned to her hometown in Ireland to drive a cab. Kiety plays Shane, newly separated from his wife, an aspiring stand-up comic who hires Eileen to drive him to his weekly comedy class. Their initial relationship starts very badly but gradually morphs into a strong connection. In short, Ballywalter is exquisitely moving and compassionate.
