The Wednesdays' Screening

So, finally, it happened. The Wednesdays (see here) got a public screening. Many of the people there had bought a ticket (though, in truth, there were loads of other films on the bill). Anyway, it was magic. People laughed in all the right places (and sometimes a lot more heartily than I had imagined). Sitting listening to them all out there in the semi-darkness was one of the nicest experiences i have ever had.

God knows what will happen now, but boy, that was fun.

Among the other films that people (ok, Conor Ferguson and Luke McManus)were saying nice things about were Scumbot (which i stupidly missed) and Frankie (which i saw and can agree about). Frankie, as it happens, was directed by Darren Thornton, formerly of Calipo Theatre Company (whose Love Is The Drug made the journey from theatre to TV-series). It's a hyperspeed steadifly -on-the-wall about a troubled lad on a Drogheda estate who is practising to be a da. And it's worth a look.
