“Unique and uplifting” Comedy Drama GOLD is out on DVD Today
“Unique and uplifting…. Maisie Williams is superb”
The Irish Times
“A cross between an Alexander Payne and Wes Anderson film… Gold transcends both comparisons”
The offbeat comedy-drama GOLD starring Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) is now available to purchase on DVD in stores across Ireland including HMV, Tesco, Golden Discs, The IFI, Tower records and Movietime
The film features hilarious and heartfelt performances from Maisie, who was awarded with the prestigious EFP Shooting Star award at the Berlin International Film Festival earlier this week, alongside David Wilmot (Calvary), Kerry Condon (The Runway) and James Nesbitt (The Hobbit).
Out of their lives for 12 years, Ray (Wilmot) is on a mission to re-connect with his ex-girlfriend (Condon) and teenage daughter (Williams) who live with his former controlling and regimented P.E. teacher (Nesbitt). Unfortunately his efforts to bridge the gap with his daughter seem to lead to chaos turning any good intentions he may have into comic catastrophe.
The film which is directed by Niall Heery (Small Engine Repair) and co-written with his brother Brendan, boasts a strong supporting cast including Steven Mackintosh (Kick Ass 2, Underworld), Martin Maloney (The Hardy Bucks), Irish comedian David McSavage (The Savage Eye) and Missy Keating, daughter of Ronan Keating. Heery previously won the Breakthrough Talent Award at the IFTA’s for his first feature Small Engine Repair.
