Once upon a time, there was a princess who sang in the forest until she could sing no more. Her father was a king who was feared but never loved. And it made him angry. For it was Fionn, his appointed chief, who won the hearts of the people. It was Fionn who protected them from their enemies. It was he who roamed the forests, the mountains and the seas. And wherever Fionn went, he was never without his trusted warrior, Diarmuid…

Paul Mercier’s modern take on the legend of Diarmuid and Gráinne makes for a contemporary myth about the pursuit of power, class, love and the chance to start again. The film features an exciting ensemble of Irish actors with Ruth Bradley, Liam Cunningham, Brendan Gleeson, Owen Roe, David Pearse and Barry Ward.

PURSUIT opens in Irish cinemas September 18th, 2015.
