A fine Irish film set in small town Offaly and enhanced by strongly observed and drawn characters, this tale from Eugene O’Brien’s own stage play, is a thorough treat.

The core of the cleverly developed plot concerns a troubled marriage, the story of which is treated with care and attention to detail and performed quite brilliantly by Walsh and Kelly.

An all-round gem.
