On the Fourth day of Irish Film Christmas Scannain sent to me…The Guarantee, Mark O’Connor’s Stalker, The Irish Pub, and Ciaran Hinds in The Sea.

Directed by Ian Power (The Runway) and starring Peter Coonan (‘Love/Hate’), David Murray (‘Amber’), Orla Fitzgerald (The Wind That Shakes The Barley), Morgan C. Jones (‘Vikings’), and Gary Lydon (Calvary) the film recreates the drama surrounding the most significant political decision in modern Irish history; when the Irish government decided to guarantee the entire domestic banking system.  It charts the origins of that pivotal decision and follows developments through the peak of the boom to the beginning of the bust.

Written by Colin Murphy and based on his stage play “Guaranteed!” produced by Fishamble Theatre Company, we see Peter Coonan and Gary Lydon star as Anglo Irish Bank Chief Executive David Drumm and Taoiseach Brian Cowen respectively, with David Murray, Morgan C. Jones and Orla Fitzgerald also starring as Finance Minister Brian Lenihan, Anglo Chairman Sean Fitzpatrick and civil servant Kate Walsh.
