This film screened 29th July 2018.

Time to forget the football with this hilarious sports comedy that combines reggae sounds with the unlikely Jamaican sport of bobsledding.

After losing out in the Jamaican Olympic trials, runners Derice, Sanka Coffie, Junior and Yul join forces when they find out there’s still a chance to enter, but in a decidedly different discipline. Into the picture comes down-at-heel coach Irv Blitzer, the late great John Candy in fine form. Together these underdogs set out to qualify for the Calgary Winter Olympics, with hilarious scenes and sunshine along the way.

Tickets: €4.80 per person, €14.40 family ticket (2 adults + 2 children, 1 adult + 3 children).
