“A sensitive exploration of a young man’s reckoning with his destiny in rural Ireland” Fionnuala Halligan, Screen International

Cian is the captain of his local Gaelic football team – for him and his friends, the sport is a religion. When Cian is attacked on a night out, he therefore brushes off the incident as inconsequential. However before long he is forced to accept that his injuries are more serious and could mean the end of his Gaelic career …

Using the identifiable world of GAA as a backdrop and featuring superb performances from Irish rising stars Éanna Hardwicke and Danielle Galligan, Lakelands explores the masculine culture existing throughout our country, where feelings are seldom shared, and any type of vulnerability is feared as showing weakness. It was a deserving Best Irish Film winner at the 2022 Galway Film Fleadh.
