KISSING CANDICE – Trailer for The New Irish Film

Premiering at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, KISSING CANDICE is the feature debut of Northern Ireland’s award-winning commercials and music video director Aoife McArdle,


‘Kissing Candice’ is a searing drama driven by the vivid, fever dreams of a volatile, seventeen-year-old girl called Candice (Ann Skelly).

Out of the stifling, isolated Irish community she has grown up in comes a new breed of disillusionment finding its most frightening manifestations in the unpredictable behaviour of a local gang. While the community is shaken by the death of a local boy, Candice finds escape in the nihilistic Jacob (Ryan Lincoln), a stranger who may be responsible for the crime.
