Polish actor Kamila Dydyna co-produces, co-directs, scripts and stars in this 26-minute Irish LGBT drama from 2016. She plays Nel, who grapples with feelings for her best friend as her husband’s insecurities erupt into violence. Miriam Devitt and Mark McAuley costar.
Taking place in an airless waiting room, where performers sit unrecognised among the audience, it ushers them into intriguing anecdotes and reflections on the politics of nomenclature around the world, a nicely shameless exercise in name-dropping.
Strong performances from the two female leads and solid work from the two directors shows an assured confidence from the cast and crew toward the project.
Shot with a predominantly female team, the opposite of the norm in most productions. The movie looks set to go places that not many Irish films have gone before.
