Element Pictures Distribution has released a new clip from Offaly director Mark Noonan’s debut feature You’re Ugly Too, which recently won Best Irish First Feature Film at the Galway Film Fleadh.

Written and directed by Noonan, the film stars Aidan Gillen as Will, a man who is released from prison on compassionate leave to care of his niece Stacey, after the death of her mother. An odd couple of sorts, they leave the city behind to pursue what they both hope will be a fresh start in the sleepy surroundings of the Irish midlands. The two bicker and fight as they adjust to their new life together and make tentative steps towards becoming an improvised family.

Music comes courtesy of Bell X1’s David Geraghty, with Love Eternal cinematographer Tom Comerford behind the camera.You’re Ugly Too was produced by John Keville and Conor Barry for Savage Productions, with funding from Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board.

You’re Ugly Too will be released in Irish cinemas on July 24th.
