The screening on 27 February will be followed by a Q&A with director Peter Mackie Burns and writer Mark O'Halloran.

The latest film from Daphne director Peter Mackie Burns offers a plaintive portrait of a life in crisis. Middle-aged Dubliner Colm (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor) has recently lost his father and is now facing the prospect of redundancy. He is married with two children but feels increasingly adrift and vulnerable. He meets teenage rent boy Jay (Tom Glynn-Carney). It is the start of a complex relationship in which the sex is secondary to the sense of comfort and connection that Colm feels in Jay’s company. A beautifully understated, compassionate drama with stand-out performances.
