Scannain has been the first look at IFTA-nominee Sarah Carroll’s poster for Alan Mulligan’s debut drama, The Limit Of, which will be released in Irish cinemas on April 5th.
The story is rooted in Alan Mulligan’s career as a young banker during the Celtic Tiger years and its crushing aftermath. The film captures the rapacious greed of the financial world and society’s ever-growing need for control.
James Allen (Laurence O’Fuarain – Black 47, Vikings) is a successful, controlling, thirty-something banker living alone and working in Dublin city at the tail end of the recession. When a family tragedy occurs due to the ruthlessness of his employer, he takes decisive action to try to make things right.
Meanwhile, his enigmatic co-worker Alison (The Irish Film and Television Academy (IFTA) is an all-Ireland organisation with a Membership of 1,240 individuals across 14 Chapters of Discipline. Best Actress-nominated – Sarah Carroll) has her own agenda, which puts her on a collision course with James, triggering and a dark spiral of deceit, revenge, and murder.
The Limit Of is written and directed by Mayo-man Alan Mulligan and produced by his brother Anthony Mulligan, alongside producer Tim Palmer (Into The West, Patrick’s Day).
Here’s the new trailer.
The trailer was cut by the film’s editor Colin Campbell, who is best known for his work on The Young Offenders, Michael Inside, You’re Ugly Too, and The Hole In The Ground.
Colin is an amazing talent and just has a great story telling ability. He has a very natural way of matching visuals with music. It’s quite a talent.
