Mister John

Written and Directed by Joe Lawlor and Christine Molloy, 'Mister John' stars Aidan Gillen as Gerry, a dissillusioned man who leaves London to look after his deceased brother’s business and family in Singapore after discovering his wife’s infidelities.

Discovering a foreign world of opportunity, Gerry seizes the chance to start over by slipping into his brother’s life – both emotionally and physically, as he starts to become intimate with his brothers widow Kim. Now, Gerry must choose between becoming his brother’s alter ego ‘Mister John’ or returning to London to face his failing relationship.

The film earned rave reviews when it screened at the Galway film Fleadh and Edinburgh Film Festival in 2013, with Variety magazine called the film “A coolly composed, quietly impressive character study, anchored by Aidan Gillen’s tremendous performance as a disconsolate family man”, and named checked Screen Scene’s resident silver haired fox Niall Brady for his exemplary work on the feature; “Ole Birkland’s crisp 35mm lensing favors static compositions that, together with Niall Brady’s layered sound design, do much to convey the positively narcotic effect of the heat.”

Mister John completed post production here at Screen Scene and Ardmore Sound, where Niall Brady was the supervising sound editor, and Caoimhe Doyle was the foley artist.

Garret Farrell handled adr recording and Ken Galvin provided the Sound Mix. Michelle McCormack was the dialogue editor, with Jean McGrath mixing foley. Warren Dowling was the online Editor, while Peter Tighe Supervised Post Production.
