Based on a screenplay by Lee Dunne, I Can’t . . . I Can’t tells the tale of Mady (Tessa Wyatt), a young Irish Catholic bride who is devastated when her pregnant mother miscarries and dies on her wedding day. Blaming her father’s lust, she refuses to consummate her own marriage to Joe (Dennis Waterman). Controversial at the time and not screened in Ireland since 1969, we are pleased to present this recently acquired copy, now preserved in the IFI Irish Film Archive.Tickets for all films will become available at 11am on June 11th at the IFI.
