Tomato Red

Adapted from the novel by Winters Bone author Daniel Woodrell, Juanita Wilson’s Tomato Red completed post-production here in 2016

The film tells the story of ‘small town drifter and street philosopher Sammy Barlach (Jake Weary) on the search for his next cold beer and the bunch that’ll have him.

But trouble is always on his menu, and this time it comes in the form of red-headed Jamalee (Julia Garner) and her dreams of hitting the big time through her brother’s movie star good looks.’

An original and moving film about the struggle to get a break and our deep-seated need to belong, Tomato Red also stars Anna Friel and Nick Roux.

The film is produced by Elizabeth Gill and James Flynn of Metropolitan Films/Octagon Films, and Daniel Bekerman for Scythia Films. Financing comes via the Irish Film Board/Bord Scannán.

Edited by Nathan Nugent with SSVFX providing all of the films Visual Effects and donal O’Kane colouring, full sound post production was carried out here at Screen Scene and at Ardmore Sound.
