Westside On The Big Screen

Westside Student ELLIE O’Halloran on the Big Screen

The trailer for Roddy Doyle’s first screen play in 18 years ROSIE has just been released and we are very excited and proud to see Westside Student ELLIE O’Halloran on the big screen. Ellie plays Kayleigh the eldest daughter of Rosie (Sarah Greene) a mother trying to protect her family after their landlord sells their rented home and they become homeless. Finding a room, even for a night, is a tough job and finding somewhere permanent to live is even harder. A situation being experienced by hundreds of families in Ireland in 2018.

The film tells the compelling story which examines how, even in times of crises; the love and strength of a family can endure. ROSIE was shot in and around Dublin and is backed by the Irish Film Board, Element Pictures Distribution and BAI.

Irish and UK audiences will get the chance to see ROSIE this Autumn when it’s released through Element Pictures Distribution.

Rosie will have its world premiere at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). It will also screen at the prestigious BFI London Film Festival. It goes on general release in Ireland on the 12th October.
