Director: Conor McPherson
Cast: Ciaran Hinds, Iben Hjejle, Aiden Quinn

Tony Award-nominated writer/director Conor McPherson's latest is an exquisite and life-affirming atmospheric drama about the redemptive quality of love. Amid lush hills and crumbling stone abbeys, the soggy waterside town of Cobh plays host to a chaotic annual literary festival. Widower Michael (Tribeca Best Actor winner Ciarn Hinds) has been adjusting to his new role as the sole caretaker of his two young kids, but finds himself increasingly frightened by nightmares that are starting to spill into his waking hours. When he volunteers as a handler at the festival, chance finds him driving supernatural-fiction writer Lena (Iben Hjejle) who he is quickly drawn to. But Michael has to compete for her attentions with internationally acclaimed author Nicholas (Aidan Quinn), also in town to plug his latest best seller and reclaim the girl he can't get out of his head. All three will be forced to deal with their own ghosts over the course of the weekend in this haunting, spooky and truly original film.
