When a lottery winner dies of shock, his fellow towns folk attempt to claim the money.
The festival is delighted to welcome director and writer Kirk Jones to Dingle to present this special screening of the hugely successful Waking Ned Devine. This is Kirk’s first feature film for which he was nominated for a BAFTA. ‘Proportionate to budget’, Waking Ned Devine was one of the highest grossing films in the world in 1999 and won awards throughout the US and Europe.
“As the twin revelations of a wonderfully unexpected pay-off prove, in the end there’s no substitute for wit, invention and real, priceless humour”. Empire Magazine
