Overview

A young taxi driver (Jack Reynor) resorts to desperate measures to help his alcoholic mother (Toni Collette) and to reconstitute a broken family that harbours dark secrets, in this devastating family drama.

Endowed with an exceptional central performance from Jack Reynor (who’s graduated from What Richard Did to a returning role in the Transformers franchise) and a career-best turn from Toni Collette, Gerard Barrett’s incisive drama was hailed by Sight and Sound magazine as “the real deal, the best Irish film in years”.
