Dark Lies The Island (15)

Irish Film Festival London

UK Premiere

Extra Features: director and cast Q&A | short film

If you’re going to get involved with men in the town of Dromord, they might as well be Mannions... and Sara is involved with them up to her neck. She is married to Daddy Mannion who is more than 20 years her senior and runs the town. But her first love is his estranged son, Doggy Mannion, a criminal recluse living in the woods outside the town. Then there is the younger brother: Martin Mannion, a small-town lothario and failed chicken farmer. Yes, Sara is involved with him too. As a result of this tangled erotic web, jealousy is rife in Dromord, and it's flinging out spears in all directions. The Mannion men have been set at each other; their long truce cannot hold. Serious violence is threatened. Will we get through the next few days without bloodshed?
