ROSIE (2018)
Fri, Dec. 13, 5:30 p.m.; Sat, Dec. 14, 1:30 p.m.; Mon, Dec. 16, 5:10 p.m.
Scripted by Booker Prize-winning author Roddy Doyle ("The Commitments"), ROSIE won the Best Feature Film Award at the 2018 Irish Film Festival London and Best Irish Film at the 2018 Dublin Film Critics Circle Awards. When the landlord unexpectedly sells their rental home, Rosie (Sarah Greene, BLACK 47), John Paul (Moe Dunford, BLACK 47, THE DIG) and their young family find themselves homeless. Cramming their belongings into their car, the family begins a daily search for a place to sleep. While John Paul works kitchen shifts, Rosie drives the older kids to and from school, where shame keeps her from confessing the desperation of their situation. Simultaneously heartbreaking and hopeful, Paddy Breathnach's (VIVA) powerful drama is a testament to the resilience of love. Winner, Best Irish Film, 2018 Dublin Film Critics Circle Awards; Winner, Best Feature Film, 2018 Irish Film Festival London. Official Selection, 2018 Toronto and London film festivals, 2019 Rotterdam and Jeonju film festivals. DIR Paddy Breathnach; SCR Roddy Doyle; PROD Juliette Bonass, Rory Gilmartin, Emma Norton.
