Event description

Description

What happens when four friends commit a robbery to save a marriage? A heckuva lot of fun, that’s what!

Brendan (Dara) a snooze of a guy, has fallen way short of his American wife’s idea of a successful husband and lover, and is now two steps away from divorce. Not ready to throw in the towel Brendan tells his wife, Nicole (Lancaster), he’s planning to rob a safe with his rather daft friend, Colm, and suddenly its game and marriage on! No surprise Brendan’s ridiculous ruse lands him and the gang in a web of lies, laughable attempts to impersonate members of the Garda and finally at the mercy of three penance dispensing nuns lead by Sister Assumpta. How many Hail Mary’s does it take to save a marriage?

Short entirely in Cork and featuring familiar faces and settings, The Holy Fail is guaranteed to charm.

Q & A with director Dara Owen and actress Jessica Lancaster follows the screening.
