Patrick’s Day is set to open in the Omniplex in Waterford on Friday 27th February.  Critically acclaimed actor and star of the film Moe Dunford who hails from Dungarvan will attend the opening night screening and will take part in a post screening Q&A which will be hosted by WLR FM’s Mark Graham.

Moe is just back from the Berlin International Film Festival where he was awarded with the Shooting Star accolade by Hollywood star Natalie Portman for his role in Patrick’s Day.    The young actor now joins a long list of famous names who have picked up the award including Daniel Craig and Carey Mulligan.

Speaking about the Waterford release Moe said:  “I’m delighted to be bringing the film to Waterford Omniplex. The screening we had in Dungarvan in aid of Pieta house was an amazing night, and knowing the people from home –  I’m sure the screening in Waterford will be a night to remember. Looking forward to sharing Patrick’s Day with everybody.”

In the film Moe plays a young man with mental health issues who becomes intimate with a flight attendant with her own demons. When his obsessive mother finds out she enlists a dysfunctional detective to separate them. Patrick’s Day is a provocative love story which explores the right to intimacy.

Since its initial release earlier this month the film has been garnering much praise:

Movies.ie ★★★★★

“A powerful, hard-hitting and emotional ride of a film, superbly framed and exquisitely performed, and is worth every cent of the admission price.”

Scannain ★★★★★

“…fascinating collision of psychiatric drama and state-of-the nation address… Well worth investigating.”
The Irish Times ★★★★

 “No amount of praise is too great for Moe Dunford in the titular role. His performance is simply spellbinding…a superb piece of Irish cinema and one of the most important films of the year – unmissable.”
