A host of stars are expected to turn out for a charity movie premier in Dublin tonight.

'How About You' will be screened at Movies @ Dundrum in aid of The Alzheimer's Society of Ireland and An Cosan.

Adapted from a short story by Maeve Binchy, the film focuses on Ellie, who, through a series of events, gets left in charge of a residential home over the Christmas period.

It has been dedicated to the late Joan O'Hara, who played the role of Alice in the last film she ever made before her death.

Stars of the film Brenda Fricker and Orla Brady are due to attend the premiere, along with producer Noel Pearson and director Anthony Byrne.

Tudors actress Natalie Dormer, Ms O'Hara's son playwright and author Sebastian Barry, PJ Mara, Ronnie Drew, Frank Kelly, Eamon Dunphy, and Frank McGuinness will also be among the famous faces at the event.

A post screening party will be held in Harvey Nichols.
