Twice Shy, the coming-of-age-drama written and directed by Tom Ryan will be released on Friday 23rd June. The news comes ahead of the Marche du Film screenings of the film at the Cannes Film Festival this week.
Featuring Ardal O’Hanlon (Handsome Devil) and Pat Shortt (Garage), the award-winning Twice Shy follows the story of a young, unmarried couple played by Shane Murray-Corcoran and Iseult Casey, who set off on a road trip from Ireland to London as the result of an unplanned pregnancy. The film charts the ups and downs of their relationship by juxtaposing their dramatic journey to the abortion clinic with flashbacks to happier times in their romance.
