    Written and directed by Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor (aka Desperate Optimists), directors of the award-winning film Helen and award-winning short film Who Killed Brown Owl, the suspenseful ROSE PLAYS JULIE stars Ann Skelly (The Nevers, Kissing Candice), Orla Brady (Into The Badlands, A Girl from Mogadishu) and Aidan Gillen (Peaky Blinders, Game of Thrones, and from the same directors Mister John and Further Beyond). The film will be released in UK cinemas from 17 September, 2021.

    As an only child, Rose has enjoyed a loving relationship with her adoptive parents. However, for as long as she can remember she has wanted to know who her biological parents are and the facts of her true identity. After years trying to trace her birth mother, Rose now has a name and a number. When she contacts her birth mother, it quickly becomes clear that her birth mother has no wish to have any contact. Rose is shattered. As a renewed and deepened sense of rejection compels her, she travels from Dublin to London in an effort to confront her birth mother, Ellen.

    Ellen is deeply disturbed when Rose turns up unannounced, but eventually feels forced to reveal a secret she has kept hidden for over 20 years. This shocking revelation forces Rose to accept the violent nature of how she came into existence and she sets out to confront her biological father, Peter. What Rose cannot possibly foresee is that she is on a collision course that will prove both violent and unsettling – dark forces gather and threaten to destroy her already fragile sense of her own identity.

    ROSE PLAYS JULIE had its world premiere at the 2019 BFI London Film Festival where it was received to critical acclaim. The film was developed with the assistance of Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland and with the participation of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland and RTÉ.

    Hi! I’m interested in reviewing this film. I won’t be able to attend the included press screening as I’m based in Glasgow, so if someone else is available for the London showing and wishes to review this then it’s all theirs. But if there’s a screener available or if the Scottish Press Days include it in their next set of screenings on Monday 16th then I’d be more than happy to take this. Thanks 🙂

    Hi Calum

    I’ve requested a screener so I’ll have to see if they supply one.

    If there is a screening during the Scottish Press Days, please put your name down on the FF Release Schedule so you can ‘claim’ the review.

    Thanks,

    KT

    Hi Calum

    I sent over a screener for Rose Plays Julie – please let me know if there are any issues.

    Thanks,
