Rebecca Daly’s critically acclaimed dramatic feature film MAMMAL starring Academy Award® nominated and Golden Globe® winning actress Rachel Griffiths (Six Feet Under) and ADIFF Discovery Award winner Barry Keoghan (Black 47, Dunkirk) is now available to view or download online on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon and Sky Store.

The second feature from Daly, MAMMAL is an exploration of the troubling bond formed between two damaged people. Margaret (Rachel Griffiths) lives in Dublin with little social life except for solitary trips to the local swimming pool. Her self-imposed isolation ends when she receives a phone call from ex-husband Matt (Michael McElhattan) telling her the son she abandoned in infancy, now a teenager, has gone missing. This news coincides with her decision to give shelter to Joe (Barry Keoghan), a homeless boy she finds beaten up outside her house. As Margaret’s relationship with Joe develops it becomes uncertain whether her attraction to the boy is that of a surrogate son or a potential lover.

Written by Rebecca Daly and Glenn Montgomery, the film was produced by Macdara Kelleher for Fastnet Films with co-producers Calach Films in Luxembourg and Rinkel Film in The Netherlands.

MAMMAL was funded by Screen Ireland, Luxembourg Film Fund, BAI, TV3, the Dutch Film Fund and the Dutch Production incentive.
