Director Carmel Winters and actor Hazel Doupe will attend the screening on Sat 2 Mar.

Hazel Doupe gives a charismatic, star-making performance in this triumphant coming-of-age tale set in Ireland’s travelling community during the 1970s. Frances (Doupe) is a born fighter who idolises Muhammad Ali. She is ready to defend herself against the many blows that life delivers, from the tragic death of her mother to having a feckless father Michael (Dara Devaney) who resents her refusal to conform to his suffocating notions of gender. A lyrical heartbreaker of a film, with a plangent soundtrack of traditional Irish songs and a collection of knockout performances.

turbulence and determination instil the film with a strong pulse that keeps it bobbing and weaving
