Win Tickets to the Dublin Premiere of The Young Offenders with Joe.ie and Her.ie
The Young Offenders hits cinemas on Friday September 16th (with previews on the 10th and 11th September) but Joe.ie and Her.ie are giving people the chance to see it ahead of release by giving away tickets to the premiere screening in Dublin on Thursday 8th September in Cineworld.
Inspired by the true story of Ireland’s biggest cocaine seizure in 2007, The Young Offenders is a comedy road movie about best friends Conor and Jock, two inner-city teenagers from Cork. When a drug-trafficking boat capsizes off the coast of West Cork and 61 bales of cocaine, each worth €7m are seized, word gets out that there’s a bale missing. The boys steal two bikes and go on a road trip to find bale 62 but not everything goes to plan.
The film which is the debut feature from Peter Foott stars Cork natives Chris Walley and Alex Murphy as well as well-known comedians PJ Gallagher (Naked Camera) and Hilary Rose (The Republic of Telly). Since its world premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh last month where it picked up the Best Irish Film award it’s been receiving praise from critics and audiences alike.
Even the well-known TV and radio presenter, actor and comedian Graham Norton has heaped praise on the film saying “A classic movie double act is born! It captures everything that makes Ireland so special – it’s very funny, outrageous, and full of heart. Sell all your cocaine and buy a ticket to see this film!”
The Young Offenders will go on release nationwide on Friday 16th September with special preview screenings on 10th and 11th September.
