Ireland on Sunday is our monthly showcase for new Irish film.

Poison Pen is a new feature film based on a screenplay by internationally renowned author Eoin Colfer (Artemis Fowl). P.C. Molloy (Lochlann Ó Mearáin), a Booker-prize-winning author, is coerced into writing for a tabloid gossip magazine. Cultures clash and sparks fly as the cerebral Molloy finds himself immersed in the world of vain celebrities and he begins to fall for his boss (Aoibhinn McGinnity). A smart and savvy romantic comedy, Poison Pen asks questions about the nature of celebrity, integrity and deception.
