Donal Foreman, Director, Out of Here.
Festival Section: Official Selection: Irish.
Irish filmmaker Donal Foreman talks about his great coming of age comedy drama OUT OF HERE, which was shown at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival 2014.
Rising Irish star Fionn Walton (What Richard Did) plays Ciaran, a passionate yet restless college dropout who has returned home to recession-struck Dublin after a year of travelling. Broke and living with his parents, struggling to re-connect with the ex-girlfriend that he left behind and the friends and social scene that have moved on without him, Ciaran questions whether he should stay or go – and comes to realise the difference between being stuck and being present.
Out of Here is a contemporary coming-of-age story showing Ireland and its youth culture in a light not previously seen or explored. Timely and expertly realised, Donal Foreman’s debut feature is a pitch-perfect and resonant depiction of contemporary Ireland and its young people.
