Trailer – Irish LGBTQ+ Drama Who We Love gets release date

The fourth feature film from Dublin-born writer/director Graham Cantwell, Who We Love is based on his acclaimed short film Lily, which won numerous prizes at festivals including Galway and Dublin. Speaking on adapting Lily into a feature length film, Graham said “The short film was very self-contained; it had a simple structure, with the setup, conflict and resolution taking place in a very compact 20 minutes. For the feature we got to expand the world of the narrative and explore some of the other characters in more depth. We went through many drafts to get it to the point where we were happy with it, then we had a reading with a full cast of actors that sent us right back to the drawing board in many ways.”


A film about coming of age and coming out, Who We Love tells the story of Lily and Simon, best friends who navigate the troubled waters of school life and explore Dublin’s vibrant and sometimes dark LGBTQ+ scene under the sharp eye of reluctant mentor Oonagh. When a misunderstanding with the beautiful and popular Violet leads to a vicious attack, Lily is faced with the greatest challenge of her young life. 

WHO WE LOVE  will be released in Irish cinemas nationwide April 28th
