Break Out Pictures is a new Irish film and event cinema distribution company founded by Nell Roddy and Robert McCann Finn. has released the trailer for Hugh O’Conor’s touching coming-of-age drama Metal Heart, which they will release in Irish cinemas on June 28th.
Metal Heart tells the story of fraternal twin sisters Emma and Chantal who are worlds apart. Emma is self-conscious, and unsure of which path to take in life – she dreams of starting a band (they have a pie-chart) with her best friend Gary, who secretly has a crush on her. Chantal, meanwhile, is beautiful, confident, and knows exactly where her life is headed. When their parents go away for the summer, their simmering sibling rivalry threatens to boil over, especially when the mysterious boy next door moves back in…
I’m over the moon that Metal Heart will be seen on the big screen this summer. I’ve loved working with Treasure on it, and it’s such an honour to be working with Break Out Pictures on their first official release. We had such a great cast and crew, we just hope Irish audiences enjoy it as much as we did making it!
