US distributor Film Movement has acquired the rights to Irish film ‘Glassland’ and plans to distribute the film theatrically in 2016 followed by a digital release.

Gerard Barrett’s acclaimed follow-up to ‘Pilgrim Hill’ premiered at the Galway Film Fleadh last year and jointly won the Best Irish Feature award (along with ‘Patrick’s Day’).

Starring Jack Reynor, Will Poulter and Toni Collette, the film tells the story of a young taxi driver who gets pulled into crime as he attempts to save his mother from alcoholism.

Jack Reynor won a Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival for his acclaimed performance. The film was released to cinemas in the UK and Ireland earlier this year – and received very positive reviews with Indiewire labelling it as a “directorial triumph”, The Irish Times calling it “superb” and The Guardian heralding it as “deeply moving”.

The film was nominated at this year’s IFTA Film & Drama Awards in the categories of Best Film, Best Director (Gerard Barrett), Best Script (also Gerard Barrett), Best Actor (Jack Reynor), Best Costume Design (Leonie Prendergast) and Best Cinematography (Piers McGrail).

Barrett is currently working on US film ‘Brain On Fire’ with Oscar winner Charlize Theron serving as one of the film’s producers. The filmmaker adapted the screenplay and is also directing and co-producing.
