IFTA winning Niall Heery’s latest film Gold, which stars Screen International’s ‘Star of Tomorrow’ Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones), David Wilmot (Calvary), Kerry Condon (The Runway) and James Nesbitt (The Hobbit), will be released in Irish cinemas this autumn.
Out of their lives for 12 years, Ray (Wilmot) is on a mission to re-connect with his ex-girlfriend (Condon) and teenage daughter (Williams) who live with his former controlling and regimented P.E. teacher (Nesbitt). Unfortunately his efforts to bridge the gap with his daughter seem to lead to chaos turning any good intentions he may have into comic catastrophe.
Heery previously won the Breakthrough Talent Award at the IFTA’s for his first feature Small Engine Repair.
Gold was produced by Tristan Orpen Lynch and Aoife O’Sullivan for Irish production company Suboticain association with Gloucester Place Films with funding from Bord Scannán na hÉireann / the Irish Film Board and the BAI.
