‘The Young Offenders’
Vico Films new comedy ‘The Young Offenders’, written and directed by Peter Foott, will be released to Irish cinemas on Friday, September 16th.

Inspired by Ireland’s biggest cocaine seizure of €440 million off the coast of Cork in 2007, ‘The Young Offenders’ follows two Cork inner-city teenagers, Conor and Jock, as they embark on a 160km road trip on stolen bikes in the hopes of finding an unrecovered bale of coke.

The film, which will premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh next month, is directed by first-time feature writer/director Peter Foott and introduces new talents Alex Murphy and Chris Walley. Well known stand-up comedian PJ Gallagher (‘Naked Camera’) and Hilary Rose (‘Republic of Telly’) also star in the comedy. Gallagher talked with Ryan Tubridy about the upcoming release on ‘The Late Late Show’ last month with Tubridy describing it as “the best Irish film I’ve seen in years”.

Key production crew include composer Ray Harman, DoP Patrick Jordan and editor Colin Campbell. The film is produced by Foott and Julie Ryan and is Exec Produced by Cormac Fox and Michael Doherty.

Foott is no stranger to comedy as he is an award-winning writer/director on the ‘Republic of Telly’ who also directed The Rubber Bandits infamous ‘Horse Outside’ video.

The film was shot in Cork city and along the Wild Atlantic Way last summer.

The Galway Film Fleadh takes place 5th – 10th July.
