Irish Film London are proud to present the London premiere of Lakelands, an award-winning Irish film which presents a transformative tale of life in rural Ireland for a traumatised young man in this deeply personal drama.
Directors Robert Higgins and Patrick McGivney, as well as stars Éanna Hardwicke and Danielle Galligan will all join for a Q&A after the screening.
The film follows Cian, a young Gaelic footballer struggling to come to terms with a career-ending injury after an attack on a night out. He undertakes a search for his own identity in a small town where Gaelic football is a religion, and identity is defined by what you can do on the pitch. The film features a cast of emerging Irish stars including Éanna Hardwicke (Vivarium, Normal People) and Danielle Galligan (Netflix’s Shadow and Bone) and is the directorial debut from Robert Higgins and Patrick McGivney who both also produced the film for Harp Media.
