Storyline

Rose, a sweet, lonely driving instructor in rural Ireland, is gifted with supernatural abilities. Rose has a love/hate relationship with her 'talents' & tries to ignore the constant spirit related requests from locals - to exorcise possessed rubbish bins or haunted gravel. But! Christian Winter, a washed up, one-hit-wonder rock star, has made a pact with the devil for a return to greatness! He puts a spell on a local teenager- making her levitate. Her terrified father, Martin Martin, asks Rose to help save his daughter. Rose has to overcome the fear of her supernatural gift & work with Martin to save the girl, get the guy and be home in time for a light snack...maybe a yogurt or something...

Quotes

[first lines]
Vincent Dooley: Why don't we see ghosts every day? The truth is ghosts are around us all the time, but most hauntings are so small they go unnoticed. For example, a pen, a pen lid, a gravel, a trapped sound, a child's ball or balls, a wheeled bin.

Crazy Credits

After the end credits are complete, there is a title card from the videotape that reads, "See you next time". While it is shown, Vincent is heard saying, That's all from us. See you next time." Then the sound of the VHS tape ejecting from the VCR is heard. See more »

A Rare Gem
30 August 2020 | by croweykidSee all my reviews

Comedies so heartfelt are few and far between. The characters are all so real, and deviate exceptionally from the standard roster of character archetypes in these sorts of films and shows. It's funny, because I never noticed how ubiquitous certain personality tropes are in this genre until watching this movie that defies the standards and is actually quite original.

Bonnie and the magpie are the best characters. Fight me. But everyone is pretty splendid in their own ways.

I do wish they didn't feel the need to endorse tobacco cigarettes at the end. The industry has enough seedy advertising without any help from the film industry. Could have done without.

If not for that, a few tiny plot holes toward the end, and the rando ending (which was hilarious, but I still wanted more elaboration 🤣) it would have been 10/10.

But overall, the film was lovely & truly unique! The best new post1990s movie I've seen this this year.
