Twig releases in Irish cinemas next week

Sade Malone in Twig
Twig, which was the opening film at this year’s Dublin International Film Festival, will be released by Wildcard Distribution in Irish cinemas next week from June 21st.

Written and directed by Marian Quinn, Twig features rising star Sade Malone (Tin Star) opposite BAFTA, Tony Award-winning and Emmy nominated Brían F. O’Byrne (Million Dollar Baby) and a cast that includes Ghaliah Conroy, Donncha Tynan, Susan McKeown, Jack Meade and Kwaku Fortune.

Set in the underworld of gangland Dublin, Twig is a re-telling of the Greek tragedy Antigone: “Twig (Malone) yearns to escape with her lover from the grip of her family's criminal legacy but when a deadly shootout claims one brother and forces another, Paulie, into hiding, she is pulled back into the chaos. Fear spreads throughout the local community as crime lord Leon (O’Byrne) vows to let Paulie’s body rot in the street. However, Leon’s guns and henchmen are no match for Twig’s iron-will as she, armed with nothing but her unwavering resolve, defiantly sets out to do the right thing and bury her brother.”

Speaking about the cinema release, writer/director Quinn said “What a time to bring this ancient tale to today's audiences. A young woman is constantly seeking to do the right thing, to pick up the flame of justice, which propels Sade Malone's thrilling performance at its core. This drive and passion infuses all the young cast, one of the great joys in making this film.”

This is Quinn’s latest feature since her 2007 coming-of-age feature 32A, which won the Best First Feature Award at the Galway Film Fleadh.

Produced by Ruth Carter for Blue Ink Films (Lies We Tell) and Tommy Weir for Janey Pictures (32A) with funding from Fís Éireann / Screen Ireland, Coimisiún na Meán, and RTÉ, the project was filmed on location around Dublin’s inner city and docklands.

Declan Quinn (Breakfast on Pluto) was the DOP on the project, and BAFTA-winning and IFTA-nominated Tony Craunston (Vivarium) edited the film.

Wildcard Distribution will release Twig in Irish cinemas from June 21st.
