'RUN AND JUMP'

April 23 2014

Steph Green’s debut feature film, ‘Run and Jump’ opens in Irish cinemas on May 2nd.

Starring Saturday Night Live Alumnus Will Forte (in his first dramatic role) and Maxine Peake, the film opened in the US earlier this year to rave reviews, and currently holds an 84% “Fresh” score on film review aggregator site, Rotten Tomatoes.

Synopsis: After a stroke leaves her husband mentally disabled and fundamentally changed, spirited Irish housewife Vanetia struggles to keep her family together in the wake of tragedy. A research grant from American doctor Ted Fielding, interested in documenting the family’s recovery process, allows them to get by. Though Vanetia initially resents living under Ted’s microscope, she soon finds comfort in his calming presence, while Ted responds to Vanetia’s dynamic, unpredictable personality. As the two explore their bond within their unique situation, a new family begins to emerge.

The IFTA nominated film, which took the prize for Best Irish Feature at last year’s Galway Film Fleadh, was edited by Nathan Nugent here at Screen Scene, with Jen McCann assisting and Aine Casey supervising.

Run and Jump opens in Irish cinemas next Friday, May 2nd. Check out the trailer below…
