New Irish films available to view on Netflix
16 Feb 2015 : Seán Brosnan
The critically acclaimed Irish film 'Frank' is one of the Irish titles newly available on Netflix
Irish films ‘Calvary’, ‘Frank’, ‘Gold’ and ‘The Stag’ - which were all released to Irish cinemas in 2014 - are now available to view on Netflix.

All four films were funded by the Irish Film Board and they join other IFB funded titles available on the platform including ‘Grabbers’ starring Ruth Bradley, ‘Life’s a Breeze’ with Pat Shortt, ‘Stitches’ starring Ross Noble, ‘Citadel’ directed by Ciaran Foy, and documentaries ‘Anton Corbijn Inside Out’, ‘Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God’, ‘Men at Lunch’ and ‘Dreams of a Life’.

‘Calvary’ is writer/director John Michael McDonagh’s follow-up to ‘The Guard’ and is his second feature film. The film stars Brendan Gleeson as Father James, a good-natured priest who, after being threatened during confession, must battle the dark forces closing in around him. Gleeson is joined by an ensemble cast including Chris O’Dowd, Kelly Reilly, Aidan Gillen, Dylan Moran, M. Emmet Walsh, Domhnall Gleeson, Pat Shortt and David McSavage. ‘Calvary’ won three IFTA Awards last year including Best Film, Best Actor (for Gleeson) and Best Script (for McDonagh). 'Calvary' is an Octagon Films and Reprisal Films production.

‘Frank’ was widely acclaimed following its debut at last year’s Sundance festival. Directed by Lenny Abrahamson (‘What Richard Did’, ‘Adam & Paul’), Frank follows a wannabe musician, Jon (Domhnall Gleeson), who discovers he’s bitten off more than he can chew when he joins a band of eccentric pop performers led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank (Michael Fassbender) and his terrifying sidekick, Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal). The feature is an Element Pictures/Runaway Fridge production for Film4, BFI, Protagonist Pictures and the Irish Film Board.

‘Gold’ was released in Irish cinemas in October 2014 and was directed by Niall Heery (‘Small Engine Repair’). David Wilmot (‘The Guard’) stars as Ray, who left town twelve years previously after his childhood sweetheart, Alice (Kerry Condon) dumped him, taking their daughter (Maisie Williams) away from him. Now he must return home at the request of his ailing father, who wishes to see his granddaughter before it's too late. But things take a turn for the absurd when Ray realises his daughter and her mother have built a new life with his former P.E. teacher (James Nesbitt) a controlling and regimented figure who is the direct opposite of Ray. 'Gold' was produced by Tristan Orpen Lynch and Aoife O’Sullivan for Irish production company Subotica (‘Jimi: All is By my Side’, ‘Song for a Raggy Boy’) in association with Gloucester Place Films.

‘The Stag’ was directed by John Butler and stars Andrew Scott, Hugh O’Connor, Peter McDonald, Brian Gleeson and Amy Huberman. ‘The Stag’ tells the story of a very modern Irish groom-to-be who reluctantly agrees to a stag weekend with his urbane friends camping in the west of Ireland. Much to their dismay they are joined by the brother of the bride, a crazy unpredictable alpha male who adds an explosive edition to the proceedings. ‘The Stag’ is produced by Robert Walpole and Rebecca O’Flanagan and co-produced by Claire McCaughley.
