Fresh from its rapturous reception at IFI Documentary Festival, Mattress Men introduces Michael Flynn who attempts to save his struggling mattress business by reinventing himself as the eccentric online personality ‘Mattress Mick’. He works under the guidance of his good friend Paul Kelly who is burdened with debts and yearns for a full-time contract and more security for his young family. Using all his marketing savvy and entrepreneurial skills, Paul embarks on a mission to make Mattress Mick a viral sensation. Will he succeed in his endeavours? And will Mick finally recognise the hard work and good intentions of his long-time friend? In his debut documentary feature, director Colm Quinn celebrates the friendship and fortitude of ordinary working-class Dubliners.

Mattress Men is a wholly engrossing tale – peppered with startling revelations of a friendship sorely tested. (Notes by Sunniva O’Flynn)
