(2011) dir Thaddeus O’Sullivan w/Stephen Rea, Martin Sheen, Gail Fitzpatrick, Trystan Gravelle, Tom Hickey, Amy Huberman [100 min]

A small town cinema in rural Ireland becomes the setting for a dramatic struggle between faith and passion, Rome and Hollywood and a man and his conscience. STELLA DAYS is the story of a man, a story about the conflict between love and duty, hope and faith, and between the excitement of the unknown and the security of the familiar. It encapsulates the dilemma of Ireland in the mid-1950s – on the cusp of the modern but still clinging to the traditions of church and a cultural identity forged in very different times.
