Our show today consisted of us mainly talking about Irish director Lenny Abramhamson and his movie Garage starring Pat Shortt which I’d watched over the weekend.
Without spoiling too much of either the show or the movie, it tells the story of Josie, played by Pat Shortt, a lonely petrol station attendant in a small town in rural Ireland and how he slowly begins to come out of his shell when he befriends his 15 year old co-worker David, played by Conor Ryan.
Lenny Abrahamson is the director behind other Irish films like Adam and Paul, What Richard Did and Frank as well as the recent Oscar-nominated Room featuring Saoirse Ronan.
Tune in to hear our verdict on the movie plus some more festival gossip as well as a preview of the return of First Dates to Channel 4.
