Description

Ireland | 2017 | 93 minutes | Nick Kelly

When a drummer for an up-and-coming Dublin rock band is diagnosed with bipolar disorder, he is forced to join a weekend mixed-ability soccer team and makes fast friends with a 17-year-old with Asperger’s Syndrome in this poignant and charming bro-com between two lonely souls.

Director Biography:¬†Before his debut as a film director, Nick Kelly worked as the lead singer and songwriter for The Fat Lady Sings, with whom he released two albums through East West/Atlantic Records in the early 1990s. He then released four award-winning solo albums where he has become recognized as one of Ireland’s most innovative, independent musical artists. His work as copywriter is also quite well known, particularly an advertisement for Guinness called “Quarrel,” featuring a young Michael Fassbender.
