New Irish feature film The Guarantee starring Love/Hate’s Peter Coonan, David Murray (Amber), Orla Fitzgerald (The Wind That Shakes The Barley), Morgan C. Jones (Vikings), and Gary Lydon (Calvary) will be hitting Irish cinemas on Thursday October 30th with a special live event to kick off the release. The first of its kind in Ireland, the live event screening will allow cinema audiences across the country to watch the film and take part in an interactive panel discussion and Q&A hosted by Today FM’s Matt Cooper live from Movies@Dundrum.
Based on Colin Murphy’s stage play Guaranteed!, directed by Ian Power (The Runway) and produced by John Kelleher Media in association with the BAI, the Irish Film Board and TV3, The Guarantee recreates the drama surrounding the most significant political decision in modern Irish history when the Irish government decided to guarantee the entire domestic banking system. It’s the first time the story has been told on the big screen and charts the origins of that pivotal decision and follows developments through the peak of the boom to the beginning of the bust.
This special live event screening will mark the world premiere of The Guarantee on Thursday, 30th October. The cinema release will be followed by a television broadcast on TV3 and DVD release later this year.
