Wicklow actors take spotlight in viral hit film Dublin Crust

Described as a mix of Trainspotting, The Commitments, and The Full Monty – Dublin Crust has been receiving high praise all around the film world.

Hot off the back of two sold-out screenings and Q & A sessions at The Whale Theatre in Greystones last week, Dublin Crust has been on a cinematic warpath since the independent film picked up awards for Best Feature Film at South Coast Film Festival, as well as Best Feature Film at the Dublin Underground Film Festival.

The movie will also enjoy the honour of opening up the Louth International Film Festival in the IMC cinema Dundalk on the 29th of September.

Not bad for a film that was shot on a shoestring budget in just 7-days.

Dublin Crust tells the story of Bonehead, an elder statesman in the Irish punk rock scene who has just recently been released from prison. Having difficulty reintegrating into society, as if he ever integrated in the first place, Bonehead tries to reform his old band Crust with some old pals who had thought that their best days were behind them.

Directed by and starring Baz Black (Bonehead), the colourful cast also features Joe Rooney (Killinaskully, Poster Boys), Barry John Kinsella (The Sleep Experiment, Maxine), Colleen Keogh (Fair City), and Louise McCann (Let the Wrong One In, Redemption), as well as many, many more talent from around Ireland.

Actors from Co. Wicklow include Greystonians Louise McCann, Gerry Cannon, Mike Timms, and Wicklow Town’s own James Murphy.

James, who plays a character named Bernard, said “For a film shot in 7 days, with no funding, it is incredible to see it how far it has come. It’s punk. It’s defying the odds and expectations.
