Eve Hewson’s Romantic Comedy ‘Enough Said’ to Premiere at Toronto Film Festival
21 Aug 2013 : By Kevin Cronin
Irish actress Eve Hewson and her father Bono.
Eve Hewson will attend the world premiere of her romantic comedy ‘Enough Said’, starring late ‘Sopranos’ star James Gandolfini, at next month’s Toronto International Film Festival - which will also feature a screening of her film ‘Blood Ties’.

In a particularly good month for Ms Hewson, it was announced last week that she has been cast in Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh’s forthcoming series ‘The Knick’, as a nurse working in New York’s Knickerbocker hospital in the year 1900.

‘Enough Said’ follows Seinfeld’s Julia Louis-Dreyfus as she becomes romantically involved with Gandolfini’s character and discovers he is her friend’s ex husband - prompting her to exploit her insider knowledge.

Ms Hewson’s acting career took off following acting placements at both the New York Film Academy and NYU, before winning her first role in Sean Penn’s This Must be the Place’, which was shot in Dublin in 2010.

That was followed by a role in ‘Blood Ties’, a crime thriller set in 1970s Brooklyn, which features Hewson in a small part alongside such Hollywood stars as Clive Owen, Mila Kunis and Marion Cotillard.

As the daughter of U2’s Bono and Ali Hewson, Ms Hewson’s new role in ‘The Knick’ could be her biggest breakthrough to date, reuniting her with Clive Owen for a ten-part series that begins shooting in New York at the end of September.

Her character Lucy is described as a ‘young, naïve nurse from the South’, who joins the ‘Knick’ hospital staff as they struggle with high mortality and tough conditions in turn-of-the-century New York city.

Steven Soderbergh - whose credits include Erin Brockovich’ and ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ series - won the Best Director Oscar in 2000 for ‘Traffic’.

Other Irish stars confirmed to attend the Toronto Film Festival include Liam Neeson, Michael Fassbender and the entire cast of John Butler’s Irish comedy ‘The Stag’, which just signed a theatrical distribution deal for the UK and Ireland.
