Michael Inside

Dir. Frank Berry  |  2017  |  Ireland, UK
96 mins  |  Cert: TBC Not Subtitled

Frank Berry brings something of a documentarian’s rigour to the tale of Michael, a luckless 18-year-old who is misfortunate to be sent to prison. Vulnerable and alone, Michael is taken under the wing of a score-settling older prisoner. With deep humanity, Berry portrays a penal system that extends beyond the prison walls.

Lucky

glór film season

Dir: John Carroll Lynch  |  2017  |  USA
88 mins  |  Cert: CLUB  |  No Subtitles

This award-winning first feature from actor-turned-director John Carroll Lynch, (Fargo, Zodiac), allows Harry Dean Stanton to shine as 90-year-old Lucky, an atheist seeking the meaning of his life. Stanton's final on-screen performance is funny, touching and beguiling, and all the more poignant in the knowledge that he passed away just days before the film’s US cinema release.
