What you may need to know.

1. Mrs. Brown is the biggest Irish comedy success since Father Ted.

2.
December’s Xmas Special was the most watched show last Christmas in Ireland OR Britain, with 9.4 million viewers. It’s big in Oz, too.

3. Back in the day, Brendan had roles in The Van (1996) and Angela’s Ashes (1996). His directorial debut, Sparrow’s Trap (1998), remains unfinished and in financial limbo.

4. D’Movie co-stars the Queen Of The Red Cow Inn, cabaret legend June Rodgers, who was also in Agnes Browne (1999), Angelica Houston’s long-forgotten adaptation of O’Carroll’s novel The Mammy. She played the role before Brendan did. Watch it in full HERE

5. Broadsheet Prognosis: Begrudge away. Brendan’s too busy winning awards and playing stadiums to give a shite. Chances are, this will earn more than every other Irish movie released this year combined.

Release Date: June 27
