Irish feature Kissing Candice, written and directed by Aoife McArdle, is now available for stream and download from a number of VOD platforms in Ireland and the UK including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and Sky Store.
Kissing Candice stars Ann Skelly (Rebellion) as Candice, a 17-year-old who longs to escape the boredom of her seaside town, only finding solace in her vivid imagination. When a boy she dreams about (played by Ryan Lincoln, Cardboard Gangsters) turns up in real life, she becomes increasingly entangled with a dangerous local gang.
Other cast members include Ryan McParland (Skunky Dog), Conall Keating (Robbie the Rabbit), Tony Doyle (Sing Street), Maghnús Foy (Red Rock), James Greene (Mammal), John Lynch (The Fall), Lydia McGuinness (Sing Street), Lalor Roddy (Lost in the Living), Caitriona Ennis, and Kwaku Fortune.
Kissing Candice shot on location in Dublin, Louth and Wicklow and had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last September. Since then it has been selected for numerous film festivals including the prestigious Generation strand of the Berlin Film Festival.
It’s the feature film debut from award-winning music video director Aoife McArdle and was produced by Andrew Freedman of Venom Films (His & Hers, Kelly & Victor, Making The Grade) and Sally Campbell of Somesuch with funding through Screen Ireland’s Catalyst Scheme.
