I Used To Live Here to Premiere at IMC Tallaght on 31st March

Posted March 26, 2015 by Conor McDevitt in News

I Used To Live Here, the award-winning drama from director Frank Berry, will receive its gala premiere at IMC Tallaght on Tuesday the 31st of March.

It’s a homecoming of sorts for the film, which was developed and filmed in the Tallaght townland of Killinarden and features mostly local people in its cast. It’s this feeling of a living community which gives the film a real air of authenticity, something that was very important to the filmmaker.

I Used To Live Here follows Amy Keane (Jordanne Jones), a 13-year-old trying to cope with the death of her mother and the reappearance of her father’s ex-girlfriend, who experiences the temptation of suicide after witnessing the outpouring of love for a local suicide victim. The film takes a fictional look at how the idea of suicide can spread in communities, particularly among young people.

I Used To Live Here has already received a five star review from Entertainment.ie with the site calling the film “magnificent” and the  performance from lead actress Jordanne Jones “phenomenal”. Jordanne got the chance to show off the film to her fellow pupils (some of whom also starred in the film) at a special screening in Killinarden Community School yesterday morning. The director Frank Berry was also in attendance and you can read about the even in this report from The Irish Times.

I Used To Live Here will be released in Irish cinemas on the 3rd of April.
