I was hoping this would have moved irish cinema forward a bit.
Unfortunately it succeeded in doing the exact opposite.
There was a great lack of authenticity regarding the prison atmosphere,
the supposed northern Ireland accents of some of the actors, the location( shot in Cork southern ireland and didn't care to hide that fact in the film).
You would expect a prison drama to be a bit gritty and claustrophobic and maybe even instill a sense of menace.
This felt more like an adult day care center where you could sit and drink a cup of tea with your custodian.
Some performances worked but overall the film was embarrassing to watch as the amateurish holes appeared one after another.
