‘Unwelcome Sentiment’ Screens at Carlow International Film Festival

The short film Unwelcome Sentiment screens at Carlow International Film Festival on Saturday 16th of November.

Directed by Noel McInerney and written by Jill Smith, Unwelcome Sentiment is a tender tale about a man at the end of his life determined not to accept kindness when it doesn’t come in a form he appreciates.

William (George Bracebridge) and his nephew Jarlath (Ste Murray) don’t see eye to eye but, with the help of a nurse named Kate (Amy O’Dwyer), who helpfully offers some sage wisdom, he comes to realise that Jarlath is simply offering comfort as best he knows how.
