Twice Shy, an independent Irish film that tackles the topical subject of abortion is delighted to announce that is will screen in Los Angeles at the Irish Screen America festival in September, and at the Indie Cork Festival in Ireland in October. The film features top Irish talent such as Ardal O' Hanlon and Pat Shortt, with leading roles from Shane Murray-Corcoran and Iseult Casey, who makes her screen debut.
Twice Shy successfully premiered to a packed audience at the Galway Film Fleadh in July, becoming one of the first films to sell out there. The film is a modern coming of age drama that revolves around a young, unmarried couple who set off on a road trip from Ireland to London as the result of an unplanned pregnancy. The film portrays their journey, through the ups and downs of their relationship and features support from a stellar cast including Ardal O’ Hanlon (Fr. Ted), Pat Shortt (The Guard, Calvary), Mary Conroy (Ros na Run) and Paul Ronan (Love / Hate).
Director Tom Ryan wrote the story for Twice Shy in the hopes of reflecting a modern Ireland and addressing some topical issues in a relevant non-judgemental manner. It is his second film since his impressive micro budget debut film ‘Trampoline’. He will receive the 'Rising Star' award at the Irish Screen America festival in LA for the film.
