Cillian Murphy’s new film could be the next big drama from Ireland

Paul Moore

From the writer of Intermission and also starring Sherlock’s Andrew Scott.

Given the fact that Cillian Murphy is very selective about the films that he makes, we’ve got high hopes for Mark O’Rowe’s new drama, The Delinquent Season.

After fashioning an excellent reputation as a playwright and screenwriter, O’Rowe makes his feature-length debut as a director and he has assembled a magnificent cast.

Plot’s it all about? : The drama revolves around two couples in suburban Dublin – Jim (Cillian Murphy) and Danielle (Eva Birthistle) and Yvonne (Catherine Walker) and Chris (Andrew Scott). On paper, they both appear to live in marital bliss, until an altercation between one couple occurs and cracks begin to appear in both of these seemingly steady marriages. The Delinquent Season is an examination of love, lust and family relationships and asks the question how well do any of us really know each other?

Cast: Cillian Murphy, Andrew Scott, Eva Birthistle, Catherine Walker, Lara McDonnell.

Director: Mark O’Rowe

Release date: April 27th
