Emmet Kirwan is an acclaimed actor and writer and the star and co-writer of the upcoming film Dublin Old School. He joined Norma Burke on the Arts Show to talk about the movie.
Dublin Old School tells the story of Jason, a wannabe DJ, on a drug-fuelled trip through the streets of Dublin as he stumbles from one session to another. Somewhere between the DJs, decks, and drug busts he stumbles across a familiar face from the past, his brother Daniel. Daniel, an educated heroin addict, is living on the streets. The brothers haven’t seen or spoken to each other in years but over a lost weekend they reconnect and reminisce over raves, tunes and their troubled past. Two brothers living very different lives might have more in common than they think.
Dublin Old School will be released nationwide on June 29th. Directed and co-written by Dave Tynan (Heartbreak, Just Sayin’) and starring Emmet Kirwan (’71, Heartbreak), Ian Lloyd Anderson (Love/Hate, Game of Thrones), Seana Kerslake (A Date for Mad Mary, Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope) and Sarah Greene (Noble, Rebellion).
