Galway Film Fleadh: Opening Night with Joyride

The Galway Film Fleadh is back with inspiring and entertaining films & events live in Galway from July 5th to 10th!

The 34th Galway Film Fleadh Opening Night will open with the World Premiere of Joyride, starring Olivia Colman and Charlie Reid. Directed by Emer Reynolds.

Joy (Olivia Colman) and Mully (Charlie Reid) are two lovable rogues. Joy is angry – she’s got a baby and motherhood does not come naturally to her; she feels she’s tossed her own dreams aside to give a screeching monster unconditional love. And, if she’s honest with herself, when she looks in the mirror she sees the shadow of her own neglectful mother. Twelve-year-old Mully also has a mum-shaped void in his life, as well as a conman dad. But Mully’s got balls; he knicks his dad’s stash of cash and steals a taxi in a bid for freedom. But, there’s an almighty yell from the back seat. It’s Joy – hungover, freaking out, and holding a baby! As they tear up the road on their riotous misadventure, we follow these roguish ‘outlaws’ in search of their dreams, in this feel-good, foul-mouthed fairy-tale.

Followed by Q+A with cast and crew.
