Les Martin and Declan Mills in Be Good Or Be Gone.
The Irish independent feature Be Good or Be Gone will screen at this year's Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival on March 4th at 7pm. VMDIFF takes place online this year, from 3rd-14th March.  

Be Good Or Be Gone is set over the course of 4 days in contemporary Dublin and follows the story of Ste (Les Martin) and Weed (Declan Mills), two petty criminal cousins, who receive temporary release from Mountjoy prison. The Film will also be available on iTunes and Amazon from April 13th.

Both lads have big plans for the future. Ste wants to make a better life for himself, his long term partner Dee (Jenny-Lee Masterson) and six-year-old daughter Ellie Mae. Weed's ambition is to conquer the world of high fashion, thus becoming the new Galliano but a nasty substance addiction needs conquering first. Ste refuses to be moved when gang boss Braler (Alan Sherlock) tries to intimidate him into a heinous act of violence. Weed convinces a reluctant Ste to take part in an armed robbery which goes badly wrong, resulting in a shopkeeper being brought to death's door. With news of the assault now broadcast over the airwaves and Braler breathing down their necks, Ste and Weed attempt to leave Dublin. As they are cornered by the dangerous world they so wanted to leave behind their plans for a bright new future seem to be dissolving away.

Be Good Or Be Gone is independently produced by Les Martin and Cathal Nally's Skidaddle Films Ltd. Filmed over three years, the production was mostly self-financed and part-funded through crowdfunding. It boasts a large cast including Graham Earley (Broken Law), Conor Lambert (Love and Friendship) Enya Martin (Comedian and Giz A Laugh Facebook page runner) Ruth Hegerty (Fair CityWar Of The ButtonsStrumpet City) and Aoife King (Fair City).

The film was written by both Les Martin and Paul Murphy.  The music was composed by two-time Emmy nominated composer Joseph Conlan (Sanctuary, Galway Fleadh winner 2016), with the Offline Edit done by Weird Wolf Media (Tom Wolfenden), and Online Edit by John Talbot Panic Post Production (Young Offenders).
