GREEN SCREEN: 20TH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING OF THE SNAPPER + TALK WITH STEPHEN FREARS, RODDY DOYLE AND LYNDA MYLES
Sharon Curley is a 20 year old living with her parents and many brothers and sisters in Dublin. When she gets herself pregnant and refuses to name the father, she becomes the talk of the town. Director Stephen Frears (Dangerous Liaisons, My Beautiful Laundrette, High Fidelity) has described The Snapper as the best film he ever made. Join Stephen, Roddy Doyle (author and screenwriter The Snapper, The Van, The Commitments) and producer of all three films in the Barrytown trilogy, Lynda Myles, as they attend this screening to introduce their film and to participate in a post screening discussion. "With The Snapper, Stephen Frears rediscovers the essence of comedy." New York Times
Following the screening we are delighted to welcome Stephen Frears, Roddy Doyle and Lynda Myles for an on-stage discussion.
