Paddy Slattery’s debut film BROKEN LAW won rave reviews and standing ovations at this years Dublin International Film Festival, now audiences around the country will have the opportunity when the film opens in Irish cinemas this August.
Telling the story oftwo estranged brothers on opposite sides of the law, BROKEN LAW follows Garda Síochána member Dave Connolly and his brother Joe, an ex convict. Dave’s family loyalty is tested when he finds himself embroiled in a cover-up that leads to a secret relationship with Amia, an unhappily married woman who also happens to be the victim of his brother’s latest crime.
Speaking on the upcoming release, director Paddy Slattery commented ” Over the last ten years I would have told you that nothing, not even a global pandemic, could stop me from making this film and bringing it to cinemas. Well, I guess this is why they say you should never tempt fate. But bringing a film to the big screen has been a dream of mine for so many years, so it feels surreal knowing that this dream will become a reality very soon. Of course this pandemic has forced us to put our plans on ice for now, but it has also reminded us of how important the cinema going experience is, thereby making our journey from script to screen all the more meaningful. We’re extremely proud of our film and cannot wait to share it with audiences when cinemas finally re-open.”
