Kings (2007)


Partnership event with Irish Arts

A film written and directed by Tom Collins and based on Jimmy Murphy’s play The Kings of the Kilburn High Road, starring Colm Meaney, Donal O’Kelly, Brendan Conroy and Donncha Crowley. In the mid-1970s a group of young Irish men leave the Connemara Gaeltacht, bound for London and filled with ambition for a better life. After thirty years, they meet again at thefuneral of their youngest friend, Jackie. The film intersperses flashbacks of a lost youth in Ireland with the harsh realities of modern life.

For some the thirty years has been hard, working on building sites across Britain. Slowly the truth about Jackie’s death become clear and the friends discover they need each other more than ever. The film is bilingual, having both Irish and English dialogues. It premiered at the Taormina Film Festival (Italy) in June 2007, and was selected as Ireland’s official entry for the 2008 Academy Awards in the best foreign-language film category.

The film was nominated for a record 14 Irish Film and Television Awards (IFTAs) in 2008, going on to win 5 IFTAs, including Best Irish Language Film.
