Due to the closure of Ireland’s cinemas under new COVID-19 guidelines, Break Out Pictures has moved the release of the highly acclaimed Rialto to home cinema.

From Friday, April 9th, Rialto will be available to watch on various platforms including Barbican Home Cinema, Curzon Home Cinema, Volta and IFI@Home.  

Unfortunately with all cinemas now closed in Ireland, we made the quick decision to pivot to a digital release for RIALTO after only 5 days in cinemas,” Nell Roddy of Break Out Pictures told IFTN when discussing the VOD release. “Rialto is an extraordinary film and we are delighted to give audiences an opportunity to now view it in their own homes.” 

Directed by Scottish director Peter Mackie Burns and based on Mark O’Halloran’s play TradeRialto made its world premiere in the Orizzonti strand of the prestigious festival back in September 2019. Read our interview with Peter Mackie Burns.

At 46, Dubliner Colm (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor) has a comfortable life: a managerial job in the city’s docks, two healthy teenage children, and a kind, loyal wife in Claire (Monica Dolan). After the death of his father, Colm’s emotional life cracks open. Unable to confide in Claire, Colm finds himself drawn to Jay (Tom Glynn-Carney), a 19-year old who quickly becomes his only solace from the pressures he feels.

Masculinity, familial dysfunction and the very nature of love come under the microscope in this nuanced and powerfully affecting drama from the director of Daphne and the writer of Adam and Paul and Garage, centred upon a stunning lead performance by Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (Avengers: Infinity War).

Read our interview with Tom Vaughan-Lawlor where he discusses Rialto and working with director Peter Mackie Burns.

Rialto is produced by Alan Maher and John Wallace for Cowtown Pictures, as well as Tristan Goligher and Valentina Brazzini for The Bureau. The film is financed by Screen Ireland, the BFI, and The Bureau, with The Bureau acting as sales agent.
