STANDBY Goes on Nationwide Release Today

Posted November 14, 2014 by Suzanne Murray in News

The feelgood romantic comedy STANDBY goes on release in cinemas across Ireland today. Starring Brian Gleeson (Love/Hate, The Stag) and Jessica Paré (Mad Men) the film marks the feature debut of directors Rob and Ronan Burke, who recently directed the second series of RTE’s hit comedy Damo and Ivor.

Alan (Gleeson) is stuck in a rut. Living with his dad, working with his mum at the tourist information desk in Dublin airport, and rapidly approaching thirty, things aren’t turning out quite how he planned. Then Alice (Paré) walks back into his life. She’s the old flame he left behind in America after a summer fling eight years ago, and now she’s stuck on standby in Dublin. Alan seizes his chance to find out if she really is the one that got away, by taking her on a night out in Dublin she’ll never forget.

With the sparkling chemistry between its two leads, a warm and witty script from writer Pierce Ryan, and a fine supporting cast of comedic talent including Stanley Townsend, Ian Lloyd Anderson, John Lynn, and Francesca Cherrault, STANDBY is a thoroughly modern transatlantic romance that captures the city of Dublin in a way rarely seen onscreen.

“…a gentle, funny rom-com for which the term ‘heart-warming’ might have been coined.”
