I recently saw this at the 2008 Palm Springs International Short Fest. This is a story of a 17 year old girl Lowland Fell (Jane McGrath) who is on her own in rural Ireland while her father is on an archaeological dig. On a bicycle ride through the country side she meets two brothers Mark (Robert Sheehan) and John (Michael Winder) near her age who are cutting peat in the bogs. She accidentally makes a remarkable discovery which leads to she and the brothers spending an evening together at their nearby farmhouse. It's really not much of a story but it's beautifully shot by cinematographer Suzie Lavelle and nicely directed by director/writer Michael Kinirons, a graduate of the National Film School in London who was at my screening for an audience Q&A. Irish television actors McGrath and Robert Sheenan with Winder turn in good screen roles. McGrath has a natural screen presence and is in virtually every scene. A fantastic music score from Chris White. This is a strange little film but is a strong testament to the talent involved in it's production. Elaine Harrington co-writes, art direction from Francis Taafe and Zoe Ellis edits. I would give this a 7.5 out of 10 and recommend it.
