We are delighted to announce that Staid has been selected for screening at the 2016 Galway Film Fleadh. It's happening July 9th, 4.30pm in the Town Hall Theatre Studio.
Best selling author and playwright, Paul O’Brien makes his debut as a film-maker with his amazingly raw and beautiful terrier of a movie, Staid. Although set in Ireland, its themes are universal centrepieces of love, loss, ambition and that feeling of being stuck in life. Four small-town people, tied together by new and old relationships, come together to tangle, fight, sing, talk, smoke, drink, argue, laugh, leave and return — and stumble towards the reality that their lives are finally changing, whether they like it or not. The story unfolds in a unique, lush package that hangs together so well because of the the craft of the script; the amazing performances and the gentleness of the storytelling. To see all of these characteristics come together makes this movie irresistible. Staid signals the arrival of a new, important voice in Irish cinema. - New York Times Bestselling author, Eoin Colfer
