Steph Green’s first feature Run & Jump is set to screen at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival. Green was nominated for an Oscar for her short New Boy. Her new feature, written by Ailbhe Keogan and produced by Tamara Anghie, is an unconventional love story set in rural Ireland about a woman’s relationships with her husband, after he suffers a stroke, and with the doctor treating him.
The film follows Vanetia Casey (Maxine Peake), who is struggling to return her family to normality after her husband, Conor (Edward MacLiam), suffers a rare stroke that changes his personality. When an American doctor, Ted (Will Forte), comes to stay with the family to study Conor’s condition, relationships are strained. With two children and two men in the house, Vanetia treats Ted with hostility, before seeing the calming effects he has on the family.
