We're very much liking the look of Patrick's Day, a new independent Irish film making it into cinemas hopefully nationwide on February 6.
It's written and directed by Terry McMahon who also has "a scabrous black romantic comedy" coming up this year, Oliver Twisted.
"Patrick (Moe Dunford) is a warm, open, 26-year-old virgin schizophrenic," reads the pitch. "Pills and his mother’s (Kerry Fox) protection mean he is no threat to himself or anyone else. Until he falls in love. The object of his desire, Karen (Catherine Walker), a suicidal flight attendant, has no idea the intimacy she shares with Patrick might reintroduce her to living. Patrick’s obsessive mother Maura doesn’t realise her own misguided love may be more dangerous than hate. To pull Karen and Patrick apart, she enlists the help of dysfunctional detective Freeman, who will use his position to help her, for a price. A provocative and heart-breaking love story about the right to intimacy for everyone, Patrick’s Day proves, when it comes to love, we’re all a little crazy."
