north-circular-road_angel-awards-winGreat news from the continent, where independent Irish feature film North Circular Road was the runaway winner at the 13th Angel Film Awards at the 2015 Monaco International Film Festival.

One of Europe’s respected film festivals, the Monte Carlo-based event is a celebration of non-violent films and, at the awards ceremony on 6 December, North Circular Road was named Best Feature. The film also picked up awards for Donal Nugent as Best Director, Lorna Larkin as Best Actress, and Orla McGovern Best Supporting Actress.

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 brought to screen by producers Kathy Horgan and Michael Parle (star of Night People) of Dark Window Media.

An Irish cinema release is currently being planned.
