Competition: Win ‘The Stag’ on DVD


To coincide with the release of The Stag on Blu-ray and DVD, the good people at Eclipse Pictures have given Film Ireland  5 copies of the hilarious Irish comedy to give away.

Andrew Scott and Hugh O’Conor star in this Irish comedy written and directed by John Butler.  Metrosexual groom-to-be Fionnan (O’Conor) would rather go to his fiancée Ruth (Amy Huberman)’s hen party than his own stag do.  Ruth, however, manages to persuade his best friend Davin (Scott) to arrange the stag and he opts for a walking holiday.  Despite their best efforts to avoid him, they are joined by Ruth’s maniac brother known as The Machine (Peter McDonald), who turns the low-key weekend into a series of misadventures.  Will Fionnan make it back to his future wife unscathed?

Andrew Scott (BBC’s Sherlock and Legacy) leads a fresh ensemble cast of Irish stage, screen and comedy stars including Hugh O’Conor (The Young Poisoner’s Handbook, My Left Foot), Brian Gleeson (Snow White and the Huntsman, The Eagle of the Ninth), Andrew Bennett (Fool for Love, Angela’s Ashes), Michael Legge (Channel 4’s Shameless) and Amy Huberman (Comedy Central’s Threesome).

Award-winning writer/director John Butler (RTE’s award winning sketch show Your Bad Self, debut novel The Tenderloin) makes his feature directing debut with this hilarious and touching comedy about male friendship – developed and co-written with actor/writer Peter McDonald (I Went Down, When Brendan Met Trudy), and produced by Rebecca O’Flanagan and Rob Walpole (The Good Man).
