Movie- A DATE FOR MAD MARY (6pm)

October 6, 2017

NZ Herald 4/5 Stars  "Not since Muriel's Wedding have marital concerns felt so amusingly raw and honest. A Date for Mad Mary is a charming coming-of-age story that is sparingly humorous, often melancholic, but always engaging."

BEST FILM at 2017 Irish Film and Television Awards.

Official Selection 2017 NZ International Film Festival.

Irish comedy-drama sees "Mad" Mary McArdle return to Drogheda after a short spell in prison for something she'd rather forget. Back home, everything and everyone has changed. Her best friend, Charlene, is about to get married and Mary is maid of honour. When Charlene refuses Mary a 'plus one' on the grounds that she probably couldn't find a date, Mary becomes determined to prove her wrong.
