IFI SCHOOLS: A DATE FOR MAD MARY

After a short spell in prison, ‘Mad’ Mary McArdle returns home to Drogheda, eager to reunite with best friend Charlene for whom she is about to act as maid of honour. Annoyed by Charlene’s assumption that she won’t have a date for the wedding, Mary joins a dating agency, embarking on a series of disastrous encounters before events take an unexpected turn. A brilliant addition to our Irish film category, this tough and tender story focuses on female relationships and a character’s transition from teen to adulthood

IFI SCHOOLS: HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE

Wide-eyed, rebellious ’gangsta’ Ricky is bounced to yet another foster home on the edge of the New Zealand wilderness. For the welfare worker he’s a ‘real bad egg’, but kindly foster Aunt Bella wins him over, helped by the gift of a dog he calls Tupac. Then circumstances change and Ricky finds himself on the run with grumpy foster Uncle Hec (Sam Neill) who is accused of his kidnapping. The misfit pair must learn to get along as the police get closer. A freshly told adventure story filled with heart, humour, and ‘trees, birds, rivers, sky’.

IFI SCHOOLS: SING STREET

Director John Carney won international acclaim with his lo-fi musical Once. He achieves a similar charm and effect with this 1980’s set, funny teen drama, in which Conor, (newcomer, Ferdia Peelo-Walsh), seeks to escape from the strains of family life by starting a band. With advice on music and girlfriends freely offered from stoner older brother (Jack Reynor), Conor learns to negotiate the pitfalls of band life, falling in love and growing up.
