STANDBY starring Brian Gleeson and Jessica Pare directed by Rob and Ronan Burke 

Standby, the new comedy romance starring Brian Gleeson (The Stag) and Jessica Paré (Mad Men), will be released in cinemas across the country from Friday November 14th

Twenty-something Alan (Gleeson) is down on his luck. Stood up at the altar and recently fired from his banking job, he finds himself working with his mother as a part-time tourist advisor at Dublin Airport. It’s there he comes face to face with first love Alice (Paré), stuck on standby for a flight home to New York. Their summer romance ended eight years previously with Alan promising to return to the US one day. He never did, and they haven’t spoken since.

Seizing his chance, Alan convinces a reluctant Alice to stay one more night in Dublin. Over the course of an unforgettable evening, they may just realise that they are more compatible than ever. But time is running out on this brief encounter. When does an unexpected second chance, become the one you’ve always been looking for?

Directed by brothers Rob and Ronan Burke, in their feature debut, and written by Pierce Ryan, Standby is about what happens when your 20s don’t go how you planned. It’s about falling in love, with a girl and a city again.

The film will receive its world premiere at the Cork Film Festival and go on general release from Friday 14th November.
