‘A Date For Mad Mary’ gets rave reviews ahead of Film Fleadh screening July 5, 2016


The first reviews of Screen Scene posted feature A Date for Mad Mary have been published, with critics effuse in their praise for the film.

Directed by Darren Thornton (who co-wrote with brother Colin) and produced by Ed Guiney and Juliette Bonass, A Date for Mad Mary is a tough and tender story about friendship, first love, and letting go of the glory days.

Variety called the film “a winning Irish charmer… that has all the makings of a crossover hit,” going on to say that the film is “beautifully performed, warm yet melancholic.“

The Playlist singled out lead actress Seána Kerslake for her incredible turn in the film, stating that “in a perfect world it’s the sort of star-making performance that should garner attention on both sides of the Atlantic.”

The film is set to screen at the Galway Film Fleadh this Friday at 6pm in the Town Hall, with Director Thornton and cast in attendance. Full details on that screening can be found here.
