Irish Film @ Toronto

| August 16, 2016 | Comments (0)


Second to None, a short film by Vincent Gallagher, Handsome Devil, directed by John Butler (The Stag), and Brain on Fire from Gerard Barrett (Glassland) join the four previously announced Irish films to screen at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) next month.

Second to None tells the story of Frederick Butterfield, a failed inventor who has always played second fiddle to his mere one minute older twin brother Herman. When Herman becomes the world’s oldest man, Frederick  sees his opportunity to be first place. He’ll just have to get rid of his brother to do it.

Handsome Devil is set in a privileged boys’ boarding school in Ireland. Ned and Conor are forced to share a bedroom at their boarding school. The loner and the macho athlete at this rugby-mad school form an unlikely friendship, until the authorities test it. Former Ireland and Lions rugby captain Brian O’Driscoll was on set last summer to choreograph some of the rugby scenes.

Brain on Fire stars Chloe Grace Moretz (pictured) in the lead role and is a look at a young New York woman’s rapid descent into insanity.



The Toronto International Film Festival takes place from the 8-18 September 2016.
