And action! ‘Beauty of Kilkenny’ stars in new film about to hit the big screen
A new feature film based in Kilkenny will be hitting the silver screen in the coming weeks.
“Poster Boys,” described as the “road trip movie of the summer”, tells the story of a dysfunctional uncle, who in a desperate attempt to save his job takes his 10-year-old nephew, on a cross country adventure in a stolen campervan.
Not only is the film set in the Marble County, but is backed financially by local entrepreneur and Dragon’s Den star Bobby Kerr.
The film features a host of familiar faces including Keith Duffy, Amy Hughes, Joe Rooney and Ian Dempsey as they interact with the stars of the film Trevor O’Connell and ten-year-old Ryan Minogue-Lee.
Poster Boys had its premiere last year at the Galway Film Fleadh and goes on general release in selected cinemas on Friday week, July 9.
Speaking ahead of its release, director Dave Minogue said: “The film offers a feel-good comedy road trip experience, with a lot of heart, while showing off the beauty of Kilkenny.
“Viewers will recognise scenes from Thomastown, Goresbridge, Graignamanagh as well as Stoneyford and Mullinavat.”
