You’re Ugly Too will have its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival in February, under the Generation section.
Written and directed by Mark Noonan, the film stars Aidan Gillen as Will, who is released from prison on compassionate leave to care of his niece Stacey, after the death of her mother. An odd couple of sorts, they leave the city behind to pursue what they both hope will be a fresh start in the sleepy surroundings of the Irish midlands. The two bicker and fight as they adjust to their new life together and make tentative steps towards becoming an improvised family.
You’re Ugly Too was produced by John Keville and Conor Barry for Savage Productions and was filmed in counties Dublin and Offaly.
The Generation category of the Berlin International Film Festival is devoted to children and young people. You’re Ugly Too will screen in the Generation Kplus category, which is aimed at children from the age of fourteen.
The 2015 Berlin International Film Festival will take place from February 5th to 15th.
