Following its successful Irish cinema release, the five-star feature film Cardboard Gangsters will be available to purchase on DVD across Ireland from this Friday, 6th October.   Outlets including Golden Discs, Tesco, Easons, Tower Records, Head, Irish Film Institute and Dublin Airport will all be selling the critically acclaimed drug-land drama.

Directed by Mark O’Connor and starring John Connors (Love/Hate, King of the Travellers), Fionn Walton (Out of Here, What Richard Did) and Kierston Wareing (Fish Tank, East Enders) CARDBOARD GANGSTERS follows a group of wannabe gangsters as they attempt to gain control of the drug trade in Darndale, chasing the glorified lifestyle of money, power and sex.  Jay Connolly (Connors) is a part-time DJ and low-level drug dealer.  When his welfare is cut off he decides it’s time for him and his gang to enter the big leagues. This attracts the attention of the local King Pin and sets Jay down a violent and bloody path.

The film which is the biggest grossing Irish film so far this year at the Irish Box Office was produced by Stalker Films and Five Knight Films in association with Filmbase and with the support of the BAI, Egg Post Production and TV3.
