Synopsis:
The Early Films (1974-1985)
Dublin-born Thaddeus O’Sullivan is one of Ireland’s most distinguished cinematographers and film directors. His award-winning feature films include Stella Days, The Heart of Me, Nothing Personal and December Bride. With this new DVD the IFI Irish Film Archive brings together five of his earliest films digitally re-mastered and made available for the first time since their original, limited release 30-40 years ago. The collection represents an important and vibrant period in the 1970s and ’80s when key Irish filmmakers were working in formally experimental and critically questioning ways within what is now called the first wave of Irish cinema.

This collection traces O’Sullivan’s early endeavours as a student in London, at Ealing Art College and the Royal College of Art, where he made the experimental student works Flanagan (1974) and A Pint of Plain (1975) through to his first commercial cinema release, the BAFTA-nominated The Woman Who Married Clark Gable (1985) starring Brenda Fricker and Bob Hoskins. In the BFI-funded On a Paving Stone Mounted (1978) which features performances by Christy Moore, Stephen Rea, Gabriel Byrne and Miriam Margolyes and his cine-essay Assembled Memories (1981) about the life and work of painter Jack B Yeats, viewers can better appreciate how O’Sullivan experimented with film to explore memory, migration and creativity.

Meanwhile, David Drumm (Coonan) frantically tries to get the ‘moolah’ to keep Anglo Irish Bank open, while Sean Fitzpatrick (Jones) pitches for state support. With the pressure on both sides building and time running out, the Taoiseach and his finance minister decide on a course of action which will have consequences that are still being felt today.

Competition: Win Tickets for The Carte Noire IFI French Film Festival

S_55876

To celebrate the launch of the Carte Noire IFI French Film Festival 2014, les personnes merveilleux  à la IFI have offered us 2 pairs of tickets to 2 films in the ‘Emerging Directors’ strand of the festival.

Tonnere ( Thursday, 20th November 20.45)

Maxime (Vincent Macaigne) returns to live with his father (Bernard Ménez) in Tonnerre (meaning ‘thunder’), a small town in the Burgundy region. With the young and pretty Mélodie, a journalist at the regional newspaper, Maxime finds love when it is least expected. Amidst the apparent tranquility of Tonnerre, a passion is born giving way to obsession. Like an emotional stake, Vincent Macaigne’s poignant, heartwrenching performance goes right to the heart.

Fool Circle + The Lizards (Double Bill, Thursday 27th November, 18.15)

Fool Circle

Léon (Laurent Lafitte) and Bruno (Vincent Macaigne), brothers diametrically opposed, never hung out, and saw even less of their dad, whose memory brings back a lost and confused childhood. At the funeral home, rather than their deceased father, they meet Chloé (Ludivine Sagnier), the sister they never knew they had. The trio start an investigation at their childhood home – a former lakeshore hotel, now officially sealed. Through an atmosphere of melancholy, a fine and subtle comedy emerges, stylised by cinephilic digressions referencing both Bertrand Blier and Wes Anderson.

The Lizards


Léon joined by his buddy Bruno, waits in a sauna where he is to rendezvous a girl he has met online.

 

To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets simply email the director’s name of the film you’d like to win tickets for to filmireland@gmail.com. Please include a telephone number. Bonne chance…

Competition: Win Tickets to ‘Set Fire to the Stars’ plus Q&A with Celyn Jones.

s_55112

Thanks to our good friends at the IFI, we have a pair of tickets to give away to tonight’s special preview screening of Set Fire to the Stars (6.30pm Thurs 13th), which features a Q&A with its writer, producer and cast member Celyn Jones.

To win yourself a pair of tickets simply email filmireland@gmail.com with Set Fire to the Stars in the subject line. Please include a telephone number. The winner will be contacted at 5.00 this evening.

It is New York in 1950 and John Malcolm Brinnin (Elijah Wood) is an uptight Harvard graduate, an aspiring poet and critic who is in awe of Dylan Thomas. Despite the Welsh writer’s reputation as a hell-raiser, Brinnin persuades conservative powers-that-be to bankroll a university speaking tour, volunteering to co-ordinate the events and to chaperone Thomas on his visit. Yet when Thomas (portrayed with scene-stealing relish by the film’s co-writer, Celyn Jones) arrives in America, neither Brinnin nor the country is prepared for what hits them. The release of Set Fire to the Stars coincides with celebrations marking Dylan Thomas’ centenary and it succeeds in being more than simply a tribute to wayward genius. With an impeccable supporting cast, it is an engaging, ingenious and handsomely mounted film, brooding on the nature of creativity and inspiration. (Notes by Michael Hayden.)

Competition: Win Tickets to Clint Mansell’s Irish debut at the National Concert Hall

 pr86378_[1]_Clint_Mansell_PhotobyIvanBideac_3(1)

Composer of soundtracks to Requiem for a Dream, Pi, The Wrestler and Black Swan, Clint Mansell will make his Irish debut at the National Concert Hall, Sunday 12th October, with his band, the Sonus Quartet and Carly Paradis, piano.

The Grammy and Golden-Globe nominated composer is a long-time collaborator of ground-breaking director Darren Aronofsky, for whom he has scored the aforementioned movies. In addition to his impressive work for film, Clint received major acclaim for his 2009 score for Duncan Jones’ directorial debut Moon. His latest creation is the soundtrack to the film Noah, starring Russell Crowe.

Frontman of the disbanded group Pop Will Eat Itself, Mansell was first introduced to film scores by Aronofsky who hired him to score his debut film Pi, after which he went on to score Aronofsky’s next film Requiem for a Dream. The film’s primary composition ‘Lux Aeterna’ has become extremely popular, appearing in a variety of advertisements, film trailers and YouTube clips.

Other notable achievements include the theme for the film The Hole, the music for the pilot episode of CSI: NY, and the score for Aronofsky’s later films The Fountain, which was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score in 2006), and The Wrestler. Mansell has also contributed the score to HBO’s Voyeur.

Affectionately known as Clint Poppie, Mansell started out in 1981, forming a group called From Eden, which included future members of Pop Will Eat Itself, in the English industrial city of Stourbridge. After several years, the band broke up. Mansell then moved to the U.S. and proceeded to write the score to the movie Pi, and he produced a limited-edition U.K. remix 12″ of the movie’s theme. In addition, he has worked with Trent Reznor, both helping with remixes and appearing on Nine Inch Nails’ album The Fragile, and has pursued film scoring aggressively since.

Competition: Win ‘The Stag’ on DVD

 

To coincide with the release of The Stag on Blu-ray and DVD, the good people at Eclipse Pictures have given Film Ireland  5 copies of the hilarious Irish comedy to give away.

Andrew Scott and Hugh O’Conor star in this Irish comedy written and directed by John Butler.  Metrosexual groom-to-be Fionnan (O’Conor) would rather go to his fiancée Ruth (Amy Huberman)’s hen party than his own stag do.  Ruth, however, manages to persuade his best friend Davin (Scott) to arrange the stag and he opts for a walking holiday.  Despite their best efforts to avoid him, they are joined by Ruth’s maniac brother known as The Machine (Peter McDonald), who turns the low-key weekend into a series of misadventures.  Will Fionnan make it back to his future wife unscathed?

Andrew Scott (BBC’s Sherlock and Legacy) leads a fresh ensemble cast of Irish stage, screen and comedy stars including Hugh O’Conor (The Young Poisoner’s Handbook, My Left Foot), Brian Gleeson (Snow White and the Huntsman, The Eagle of the Ninth), Andrew Bennett (Fool for Love, Angela’s Ashes), Michael Legge (Channel 4’s Shameless) and Amy Huberman (Comedy Central’s Threesome).

Award-winning writer/director John Butler (RTE’s award winning sketch show Your Bad Self, debut novel The Tenderloin) makes his feature directing debut with this hilarious and touching comedy about male friendship – developed and co-written with actor/writer Peter McDonald (I Went Down, When Brendan Met Trudy), and produced by Rebecca O’Flanagan and Rob Walpole (The Good Man).

To win yourself a copy of the film on DVD, simply answer the following question:

Andrew Scott recently played Father Seamus in which Ken Loach film?

Competition: Win The LEGO® Movie on DVD

lego

    WIN

The LEGO® Movie

ARRIVES  ON BLU-RAY 3D™, BLU-RAY™,

 DVD ON 18th July AND

AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL DOWNLOAD FROM 7th July

 

To celebrate the release of The LEGO® Movie on  Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download, Film Ireland are delighted to offer 5 lucky readers the opportunity to win a copy of the DVD.

 

Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street), The LEGO Movie is the hilarious story of a nobody who saves everybody.

The LEGO Movie stars Chris Pratt (Her) as the voice of Emmet, an ordinary LEGO minifigure, mistakenly thought to be the extraordinary MasterBuilder, with Will Ferrell (Anchorman) as the voice of President Business, aka Lord Business, an uptight CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life.

Voicing the members of Emmet’s rebel crew on this heroic mission are Morgan Freeman (Oblivion) as the ancient mystic Vitruvius; Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games) as tough-as-nails Wyldstyle, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest; Will Arnett (The Millers) as the mysterious Batman™, a LEGO minifigure with whom Wyldstyle shares a history; Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) as the craggy, swaggering pirate Metal Beard, obsessed with revenge on Lord Business; Alison Brie (Mad Men) as the sweet and loveable Unikitty and Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses) as Benny, the 1980-something Spaceman.

From a story by Dan Hageman, Kevin Hageman, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, The LEGO Movie was produced by Dan Lin (Justice League, Gangster Squad) and Roy Lee (The Grudge), with Jill Wilfert, Matthew Ashton, Kathleen Fleming, Allison Abbate, Zareh Nalbandian, Jon Burton, Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Seanne Winslow, Matt Skiena and Bruce Berman serving as executive producers, and John Powers Middleton as co-producer.

 

SYNOPSIS

 

“The LEGO® Movie” is the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO® adventure.

Directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller (“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” “21 Jump Street”) the original 3D computer-animated story follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as The Special, the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world.  He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

 

To be in with your chance to win one of five copies of The LEGO® Movie on DVD simply answer the question below:

In The LEGO® Movie, this actor stars as the voice of Emmet.  He has appeared in such films as Zero Dark Thirty, Moneyball, and TV’s Parks and Recreation.  Name this actor.

 

Email your answer to filmireland@gmail before Monday, 21st July when the winners will be selected at random by the biker-throwing Film Ireland Hat. Winners will be notified by email.
