Irish Film: North Circular Road set for St. Patrick’s Day screening at Light House Cinema

A special screening of the award-winning Irish independent feature film North Circular Road has been announced for the St. Patrick’s Day weekend at Light House Cinema.

The contemporary psychological drama will have its first Irish cinema outing with Q+A at the iconic Dublin cinema at 10.30pm, Friday, 18th March, with further dates to be announced.

The screening follows the success of the Irish feature film at the 13th Monaco International Film Festival in December, where it saw off stiff international competition to be named Best Feature and also picked up awards for Best Director (Donal Nugent), Best Actress (Lorna Larkin) and Best Supporting Actress (Orla McGovern).

A richly layered psychological drama that boasts powerful performances throughout, North Circular Road stars Lorna Larkin (The Light of Day) and Pat O’Donnell (Tin Can Man, The Looking Glass) and tells the story of weather forecaster Janice Cadogan, who begins to see disturbing visions of a troubled couple in her new home.

Co-starring Patrick Molloy (Game of Thrones) and Vanessa Richter, North Circular Road is a suspense-filled drama with a brilliant twist, brought to screen by producers Kathy Horgan and Michael Parle (star of Night People) of Dark Window Media.
