On the Tenth day of Irish Film Christmas Scannain sent to me… Run & Jump, Thaddeus O’Sullivan: The Early Films, Claire Dix’ Broken Song, Ken Loach’s Jimmy’s Hall ,comedy The StagOne Million DublinersThe Guarantee, Mark O’Connor’s Stalker, The Irish Pub, and Ciaran Hinds in The Sea.

Starring Emmy-nominated actor Will Forte (Nebraska, Life of Crime) alongside Maxine Peake (Silk, Shameless) and Ed MacLiam (Holby City), Run & Jump is a bittersweet drama about love and loss. It follows Vanetia (Peake) as she attempts to pick up the pieces in the aftermath of the debilitating stroke suffered by her husband Conor (MacLiam). As she and her children struggle to live with someone who is no longer the man they knew, matters are complicated by the arrival of Ted (Forte) an American psychologist who hopes to study Conor’s radically changed personality. Initially wary of each other, these two very different people will be drawn together as they attempt to make sense of the unpredictable and messy business of family life.

Directed by Steph Green, whose short film New Boy was nominated for an Academy Award in 2007, the films cinema release earlier this year was well received by critics and audiences alike, with Scannain awarding it 4 stars.
