Róise & Frank has already been a hit on the festival circuit, boasting numerous awards including Best Ensemble at Dublin International Film Festival; Best Film, Director and Actrress at the Stockholm Film Festival and scooping the Audience Award winner at both the Santa Barbara and Sonoma International Film Festival.

The film tells the story of the recently widowed Róise (Bríd Ní Neachtain) who in a small Irish seaside town is struggling in the aftermath of her husband Frank’s passing. Grief-stricken and lonely, Róise has distanced herself from the world around her and those dearest to her. But when a stray dog starts to follow her every move, a rejuvenated Róise starts to believe in the reincarnation of her husband and the power of enduring life in its next, hopeful steps.

Róise & Frank is an up-lifting tale of shaggy dogs, a grieving widow and finding hope in the darkest of places and is winning audience’s hearts everywhere it goes.


Róise & Frank opens in Irish cinemas this September
