UK Premiere

Emily Watson and Paul Mescal star in this powerful drama examining how women are discredited in order to protect men, and the trauma that this leaves behind. When Brian (Mescal) returns to his small town after time away, his mother Aileen (Watson) welcomes her boy with open arms. However, when a sexual assault charge is levelled against Brian, Aileen’s blind loyalty to her son causes a ripple effect that threatens to tear apart their close-knit community. Aided by gorgeous cinematography, the stark Irish countryside provides the backdrop to this haunting, emotional film that is sure to linger in the memory.

The screening on Thursday 2 March will be followed by a Q&A with Emily Watson and Shane Crowley, hosted by Rafa Sales Ross.
