Lie of The Land
Mathew (Nigel O’Neill) and Kath (Ali White) are a middle-aged couple eking out a living on a small farm in Ballymena. Desperate and crippled with debt, they are seduced by a plan to leave everything behind and find a life away from their bleak memories and financial burdens. Shepherd (Barry John Kinsella) appears as an angel ready to usher them to their new paradise, though as suspicions arise about his motives, events take a dark turn. The winner of the Best Irish First Feature award at this year’s Galway Film Fleadh, John Carlin’s exceptional debut sprinkles social commentary over thriller convention to produce a film that is tense, daring and original.
