04 Sep 2002 :

Intermission is the first feature film from award winning theatre director John Crowley of Donmar Warehouse. Principal photography started on August 31st for seven weeks on location in Dublin.

The film is supported by the Irish Film Board and the Film Council of Great Britain. It will be released in 2003 by Buena Vista in the UK and Ireland and by IFC (Big Fat Greek Wedding, Y Tu Mama Tambien) in the US.

Dubliner Mark O’Rowe is already an award-winning playwright often placed in the trinity of new Irish playwrights that includes Conor McPherson and Martin McDonagh. While each of them take a visceral look at contemporary Ireland, O’Rowe’s fierce language has a unique intensity and rawness. Theatre credits include Anna's Ankle, From Both Hips, The Aspidistra Code and Howie the Rookie which won the Irish Times New Play Award 2000, the 1999 George Devine Award, the 1999 Rooney Award for Irish Literature and the Herald Angel for the Best Production at the 1999 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Made in China is his most recent work, which premiered this year at the Abbey’s Peacock theatre.

Director John Crowley is an Associate Director at the Donmar Warehouse and his recent work includes: On An Average Day starring Woody Harrelson and Kyle MacLachlan (Comedy Theatre, West End), The Match Seller Girl (Theatre Project Tokyo, Japan), Macbeth for Thelma Holt Productions (Queens Theatre, West End) and The Turn of the Screw (Welsh National Opera). Productions for the Donmar Warehouse include Tales from Hollywood, Juno and the Paycock (and Broadway), Genet’s The Maids (and a UK Tour), How I Learned to Drive and Into the Woods.

Producer/Director team, Woolley and Jordan’s extensive list of credits include The End Of The Affair, Michael Collins, Mona Lisa, Interview With A Vampire and The Crying Game. Woolley also produced Scandal, A Rage In Harlem, Backbeat and executive produced Little Voice. Moloney has produced several award winning productions for TV and film including Last of the High Kings, Amongst Women, Sinners, A Love Divided and the highly acclaimed Beckett on Film.

Set in present-day Dublin, Intermission is a story of ordinary interweaving lives searching for love in all the wrong places. Colin Farrell plays Lehiff, a loner and petty criminal planning one last job to end his career of hellraising and start nestbuilding. On the other side of the law is Detective Jerry Lynch (Colm Meaney), a pugilistic maverick wading through the underbelly determined to make a difference and leave his mark. Cillian Murphy plays John, an incurable romantic who dumps his supermarket job to join forces with Lehiff and win back Deirdre (Kelly MacDonald) the love of his life who has moved in with Sam (Michael McElhatton), a married bank manager. Lehiff’s scam goes awry when Noeleen (Deirdre O’Kane), Sam’s violent ex wife attacks him during the heist triggering chaos.
