To mark the release the Light House Cinema in Smithfield will be hosting a special screening of the film on Saturday 2nd April at 18.00 which will be attended by the film’s director Rebecca Daly and star Barry Keoghan who will also take part in a post-screening Q&A with award-winning writer and director Oonagh Kearney.  Tickets can be purchased through the Light House Cinema website.  

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.

Both Keoghan’s and Griffiths’ performances have been praised by critics and audiences alike and both are nominated for Irish Film and Television awards.

MAMMAL will be released in cinemas nationwide from Friday 1st April.
