Tom Vaughan-Lawlor and Tom Glynn-Carney are the main interpreters of Rialto, the latest film by Peter Mackie Burns and written by Mark O’Halloran, here in Venezia 76 in the Orizzonti section. Based on the play Trade by the very Mark O’Halloran, Rialto moves away from its origins to convey a drama of loss, crisis and self destruction.

Rialto: Colm is in his mid-forties, married, with two teenage children. Still grieving the death of his father, a destructive figure in his life, Colm struggles with his relationship to his own son, whilst at work a recent takeover threatens his job. Unable to share his vulnerability with his wife, Colm’s world is falling apart around him. In the midst of this crisis, Colm solicits sex from a young man called Jay. This encounter and his growing infatuation has a deep effect on Colm. He finds a comfort in Jay that no one else can provide.
