Writer and Director Margaret Corkery, 2009 (1h26m)
In this dark comedy, a family holiday brings to a head the destructive love triangle between Eamon (Robert Donnelly), a little boy with behavioural problems, his distracted mother Grace (Amy Kirwan), and his sexually frustrated father (Darren Healy). Written and directed by Cork native Margaret Corkery, her creative approach to the absurdity of family dynamics won international acclaim for the film upon its release. Eamon was awarded the Independent Camera Award at the 44th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival and the Jury Prize for Direction at the US Cinequest festival. As Alissa Simon of Variety puts it, "Corkery’s tight script and confident direction create a pitch-perfect combination of comedy and suspense.” One of very few Irish comedies written and directed by a woman, don’t miss the chance to revisit Eamon on the 10th anniversary of its initial release.
