The Delinquent Season will then hit cinemas across Ireland on April 27th.
The Delinquent Season is a tense drama which revolves around two couples in suburban Dublin – Jim and Danielle and Yvonne and Chris. On paper, they both appear to live in marital bliss, until an altercation between one couple occurs and cracks begin to appear in both of these seemingly steady marriages. The Delinquent Season is an examination of love, lust and family relationships and asks the question how well do any of us really know each other?
The film stars Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders, Dunkirk, Free Fire), Catherine Walker (Critical), Eva Birthistle (Brooklyn) and Andrew Scott (Spectre, Sherlock, Denial).
It was a privilege to work with such an amazing cast and crew on The Delinquent Season, and I am thrilled to be launching the film with The Dublin International Film Festival on April 25th.
