Also starring Michael McElhatton (Game of Thrones), Johnny Ward (Love/Hate) and Nika McGuigan (Philomena) MAMMAL is the compelling story of a woman (Griffiths) who has lost her son and develops an unorthodox relationship with a homeless youth (Keoghan). Their tentative trust is threatened by his involvement with a violent gang and the escalation of her ex-husband’s (McElhatton) grieving rage.

The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year to critical acclaim and Barry Keoghan was awarded the ADIFF Discovery Award at the recent Audi Dublin International Film Festival.
