Directed by Tom Hall and starring Domhnall Gleeson and Luanne Gordon, Sensation follows the fortunes of a Donal, a farmer’s sole heir who is left some land; but Donal hasn’t inherited much in terms of social skills. Despite the encouragement of his best mate, he finds it hard to talk to women, and in frustration turns to the internet. He hooks up with Kiwi call-girl Kim, who has a business plan to see her off her back and behind a desk, greeting punters at her own brothel. Donal’s newfound wealth might provide her with the money she needs, but what might Donal be getting out of the deal? And what demand is there for the services of prostitutes in rural Ireland anyway?
‘Sensation’ is released on DVD and On Demand from Volta from 6th April.
It’s cetainly NOT Pretty Woman. Not as a box office success anyway!
