Subotica's 'Raggy Boy' to Open Cork
03 Jul 2003 :
This year's Cork Film Festival is to open on 12th October with the Irish premiere of Irish-made Film, Song For a Raggy Boy.
This year's Cork Film Festival is to open on 12th October with the Irish premiere of Irish-made Film, Song For a Raggy Boy.

Based on the true story by Patrick Galvin, the cast is headlined by Irish-American actor Aidan Quinn (Evelyn, Practical Magic, Legends of The Fall) and Iain Glen (Tomb Raider, The Blue Room) with Marc Warren (Band of Brothers), Dudley Sutton, Alan Devlin and introducing John Travers and Chris Newman.

Song For A Raggy Boy tells the powerful story of one man’s courage to stand up and fight the tough fascist regime in a boys’ Irish Reformatory School. Set in 1939, William Franklin (Quinn) returns from the bullet riddled streets of Madrid during the Spanish Civil War to the confining walls of a Catholic Reformatory School. Battling to come to terms with the demons of his past, amongst the cruellest of punishment, abuse and neglect, it shows how one man can make a difference

Directed by Aisling Walsh (Joyriders, Trial & Retribution, Sinners), with a screenplay by Patrick Galvin, Aisling Walsh and Kevin Byron Murphy, Song For A Raggy Boy is produced by Tristan Orpen Lynch, Dominic Wright of Subotica Films, and John McDonnell.

Song For a Raggy Boy will be released nationwide by Abbey Films, on 17th October. Lola Films in Spain are the international sales agency, and Rialto are the Danish distributors.
