Official Trailer Released for THE GUARANTEE – Out in Irish Cinemas 30th October

Posted October 14, 2014 by Suzanne Murray in News

Wildcard Distribution have released the official trailer for the much anticipated feature film THE GUARANTEE which hits Irish cinemas on Thursday, October 30th at 8pm with a unique and interactive live event hosted by Today FM’s Matt Cooper.  The event, which marks the world premiere of the film, will see a satellite link-up to cinemas nationwide with a post-screening panel discussion and Q&A live from Movies@Dundrum. Audiences across the country will be able to interact with the panel and pose questions through a special live Twitter feed which will be projected to each cinema.

Directed by Ian Power (The Runway) and starring Love/Hate’s Peter Coonan, David Murray (Amber), Orla Fitzgerald (The Wind That Shakes The Barley), Morgan C. Jones (Vikings), and Gary Lydon (Calvary) the film recreates the drama surrounding the most significant political decision in modern Irish history; when the Irish government decided to guarantee the entire domestic banking system.  It charts the origins of that pivotal decision and follows developments through the peak of the boom to the beginning of the bust.

Written by Colin Murphy and based on his stage play “Guaranteed!” produced by Fishamble Theatre Company, we see Peter Coonan and Gary Lydon star as Anglo Irish Bank Chief Executive David Drumm and Taoiseach Brian Cowen respectively, with David Murray, Morgan C. Jones and Orla Fitzgerald also starring as Finance Minister Brian Lenihan, Anglo Chairman Sean Fitzpatrick and civil servant Kate Walsh.

The film was produced by John Kelleher Media in association with the BAI, the Irish Film Board and TV3.
