Trivia

The cinema that James and Fiona go to is the Ormonde in Greystones, this is the same cinema that featured in Father Ted: The Passion of Saint Tibulus (1995). This is probably because 'Frank Kelly' (II) appears in this film and is also Father Jack Hackett in Father Ted. Frank is also a Greystones resident. See more »

Quotes

James: It was true, I was changing Ireland, like Michael Collins and Eamon de Valera... or that guy from Thin Lizzy.

A long time in the making and almost released, this respectable effort from first time auteur director/screenwriter/creative director will surely find a place in the hearts of filmgoers everywhere. Soon to be added voice-over work will add additional "dramatic flair" to be sure. It seems Creative Director Aimette has focused his energy on last years much unnoticed Snickers campaign instead of finishing this important piece of work. Unconfirmed internet rumor has it that now producers have decided to release the little seen prequel to Turning Green, tentatively titled Turning Blue, to build renewed anticipation. Aimette is currently scripting the Turning Colors Trilogy's final dark chapter and expects to begin pre-production in late 2012.
