Wildcard Release 'Get Up and go' on DVD
13 Nov 2015 :
The poster for the film was designed by Annie Atkins who was part of the Oscar-winning production design team on ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’
Written and directed by Brendan Grant, the film stars Peter Coonan and Killian Scott.

Wildcard Distribution have release the film on DVD to purchase at Golden Discs, Tower Records and the Irish Film Institute as well as online on Amazon and the Wildcard website today, Friday 13th November. It is also currently available for download across a range of digital platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Google and Wuaki.

In the film, the Love/Hate duo reunite for a slacker comedy which chronicles a hectic 24 hours in the life of would-be comedian Coilin (Scott) and frustrated musician Alex (Coonan).

When Alex’s girlfriend tells him she’s pregnant, he refuses to allow her to derail his long-held plan to escape to London. Meanwhile the hapless Coilin is striking out on stage and off, as he attempts to get his faltering comedy career off the ground and win the heart of his dream girl. With time ticking down to Alex’s departure, the mismatched pair will be forced to confront the reality of their childhood dreams of artistic greatness while their lifelong friendship is tested to the limit.

Along with Coonan and Scott Get Up & Go stars Gemma-Leah Devereux (Stitches, Dartmoor Killing), Sara Lloyd-Gregory (Doctors), Emma Eliza-Regan (Love Eternal, Darkness on the Edge of Town) and Sarah McCall (Wide Open Spaces).

Set against a backdrop of famous Dublin locations, pubs, and clubs, GET UP & GO shows a youthful and vibrant side of the city, a world of schemers and dreamers, struggling artists and musicians, all striving to make it in post-boom Ireland.

With a soundtrack that features some of Ireland’s foremost musicians including Adrian Crowley, The Villagers, and Jape, and cameos from many of the leading lights of Dublin’s alternative scene (David Kitt, Mik Pyro) Get Up & Go gives on-screen expression to the hotbed of musical talent that exists in the capital.
