A bitter-sweet comedy-drama set in Belfast
Seána Kerslake (Bad Sisters) gives a critically acclaimed, IFTA-nominated performance, and comedian Patrick Kielty stars in his first dramatic role.
Ballywalter is a life affirming story about the unexpected connections that can change the course of our lives. Eileen (Seána Kerslake) is a caustic, unrepentant University drop-out whose dreams of a successful life in London have fallen by the wayside. Back at home with her mum, she makes ends meet by working as an unlicensed driver in her ex-boyfriend’s minicab.
Shane (Patrick Kielty) has exiled himself in Ballywalter following the break-up of his marriage, but now he’s trying to get his life back on track by enrolling in a stand-up comedy course. When Shane calls a taxi to get him to his classes, Eileen answers and a surprising connection is made. As the two spend time together shuttling back and forth, a beautiful friendship develops, leading both to a moment of realisation. Shane reintegrates; Eileen makes peace with herself and who she really is. Finally, she can stop running and just drive.
“A minor key masterpiece”
“Patrick Kielty is deeply touching, Seána Kerslake is electric”
