Storyline

In 1973 Stanley Kubrick came to Ireland to shoot Barry Lyndon (1975) creating great excitement in and around Waterford. The film brought jobs, scams, candles, stories and ultimately trouble to the local people. Infamously a threatening phone call drove Kubrick, his family and the crew from Ireland and this romantic comedy follows the lives, laughs and loves of an Irish extra playing an English soldier and a young British crew member in amongst the travelling circus of the Hollywood crew - star crossed lovers from different sides of the camera track. Who made all the candles? And who made that call? Written by David O'Reilly

A love-letter to Kubrick and Mel Brooks
27 July 2018 | by drrobertgpSee all my reviews

This is a wonderful film, beautifully shot, acted and directed. The cast are incredibly engaging. I hope it will put the director David O' Reilly on the map. He is definitely one to watch.
