Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones, The Dark Knight Rises) stars in Mister John, a story of belonging, loss and identity set in South East Asia. Directed by Irish husband-and-wife team, Joe Lawlor and Christine Molloy, the couple build on a stimulating body of work with this, their new feature set to screen at the 25th Galway Film Fleadh.

Christine Molloy told Film Ireland, ‘We are delighted that the Irish premiere of Mister John will take place at the Galway Film Fleadh. This is our first visit to the festival and we are very much looking forward to presenting our new film to an Irish audience as part of the 25th Film Fleadh’.

Dealing with his wife’s infidelity and the loss of his brother, Gerry Devine (Aidan Gillen) travels to Singapore to discover the exotic life his brother had built for himself out there. He visits his brother’s bar, Mister John’s, and meets his brother’s widow. Discovering a foreign land of opportunity, will Gerry return home to his troubled life with his wife and daughter, or will he stay and slip into his brother’s persona?
