“I wanted to do something that speaks for my generation and that shows the West in a way that’s not twee or clichéd,” says Linda, who is originally from Ros Muc in Connemara.
Written by Linda and co-directed with Justin Davey, Adulting features a cast that includes Linda Bhreathnach (Corp agus Anam, The Running Mate), Carrie Crowley (Vikings, Fair City), Paraic Breathnach (Jack Taylor, Breakfast on Pluto), Emma Eliza Regan (Jack Taylor, Darkness on the Edge of Town), Sean T. Ó Meallaigh (Vikings, Klondike), and James Riordan (Lipsinkers), amongst many others.
The film was shot in Galway City and Connemara and mixes the old traditions such as working on the bog with the new traditions – Facebook, Tinder and the all-encompassing presence of social media. Cinematography is by Justin Davey.
The music for the film is by Alana Henderson of Hozier fame.
