Broadsheet Trailer Park: Gold

at

Gold

What you may need to know:

1. Comedy about Ray (David Wilmot), an estranged father who returns to his hometown after an absence of ten years in order to reconnect with his daughter (Maisie Williams) and ex-wife (Kerry Condon) but finds that his place has been taken by PE teacher and life coach Frank (James Nesbitt).

2. “You’re indestructible…” Great, now I can’t get Spandau Ballet out of my head.

3. Writer/director Niall Heery won the IFTA for Breakthrough Talent for his debut, Small Engine Repair (2006).

4. Who’d have thought that one well-placed moustache could turn James Nesbitt into George Clooney?

5. Nice little trailer with some obvious nods to Alexander Payne. If Heery keeps the comedy subtle, it may be very good indeed.

6. “Always believe in your soul…” Dammit.

7. Broadsheet Prognosis: Could be a winner.

Release Date: October 10

    Great to see Heery back with a new film, Small Engine Repair was a quiet gem of a movie which deserved more attention.
