Frank Berry's Prison Drama 'Michael Inside' Now Available on Netflix
21 Jan 2019 : Nathan Griffin
Frank Berry’s award-winning feature film ‘Michael Inside’ starring Dafhyd Flynn and Moe Dunford is now available to watch on Netflix.

Written and directed by Frank Berry, ‘Michael Inside’ stars Dafhyd Flynn, Moe Dunford and Lalor Roddy, and tells the story of Michael McCrea, an impressionable 18-year-old living with his grandfather Francis in a Dublin housing estate, who gets caught holding a bag of drugs for his friend’s older brother and is sentenced to three months in prison.

Speaking about the announcement, writer/director Frank Berry told IFTN:

“We’re delighted to see ‘Michael Inside’ available on Netflix in Ireland and the UK. It’s great to see it up there, and to know that a lot more people will get to see our film. Special thanks to our distributors Wildcard Distribution.”

The film made its world premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh in 2017 where it won Best Irish Film and Dafhyd Flynn picked up the Bingham Ray New Talent Award. Boasting a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes, ‘Michael Inside’ also picked up the Audience Award at the Cork International Film Festival and has since garnered numerous five star reviews.

‘Michael Inside' received the top honour of ‘Best Feature Film’ at the 2018 IFTA Film & Drama Awards, where it was also nominated for Best Director (Frank Berry), Best Scriptwriter (Frank Berry) and Best Actor in a Leading Role (Dafhyd Flynn).

Produced by Donna Eperon, Tristan Orpen Lynch and Aoife O’Sullivan for Subotica and Write Direction Films, the film was made with funding from the Irish Film Board.

Wildcard Distribution handled the theatrical release of ‘Michael Inside’ in Irish cinemas last April.
