Gemma Creagh talks to director Peter Foott, and actors Hilary Rose and PJ Gallagher about The Young Offenders, which has achieved the highest opening for an Irish film at the Republic of Ireland Box Office this year.
Inspired by Ireland’s biggest cocaine seizure of €440 million off the coast of Cork in 2007, the laugh-out-loud comedy follows two Cork inner-city teenagers, Conor and Jock, as they embark on a 160km road trip on stolen bikes in the hopes of finding an unrecovered bale of cocaine.
