Every year Ireland hosts the Jameson Dublin Film Festival. It is such a great opportunity to see films that are very new, very old or that commercially don't make it on to our regular movie screens.
Last week I went to see the Irish film One Houndred Morningsdirected by Conor Hogan, with a wonderful cast including Kelly Campbell, Ciarán McMenamin, Alex Reid, Rory Keenan and Paul Ronan . I left the cinema wanting a career change.....and that doesn't happen to often, but making movies, specially as beautiful and unpretentious as this one, is such a temptation.
Next weekend I will be seeing a film I never thought would make it here but when I saw the festival's schedule I rushed to book tickets.
I'm not sure where or when was the first time I heard about La Danse, but being one of my true 'loves' I spent weeks researching where it was being screened, no where near Ireland until now....this is a unique opportunity to spend 158 minutes in ballet heaven.
