Element Distribution has announced that ‘Dublin Oldschool’ will be available on Netflix in Ireland and the UK from June 1st.

Originally a stage play, the Dublin-set feature film was adapted for screen by Emmet Kirwan (’71’, ‘Heartbreak’) and Dave Tynan (Heartbreak, ‘Just Sayin’). The project was also directed by Tynan with Kirwan in the lead role alongside Ian Lloyd Anderson (‘Love/Hate’, ‘Game of Thrones’), Seána Kerslake (‘A Date for Mad Mary’, ‘Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope’) and Sarah Greene (‘Rosie’, ‘Rebellion’).   

One of the highest grossing Irish films of 2018, ‘Dublin Oldschool’ tells the story of Jason, a wannabe DJ, on a drug-fuelled trip through the streets of Dublin as he stumbles from one session to another. Somewhere between the DJs, decks, and drug busts he stumbles across a familiar face from the past, his brother Daniel.

Daniel, an educated heroin addict, is living on the streets. The brothers haven’t seen or spoken to each other in years but over a lost weekend they reconnect and reminisce over raves, tunes and their troubled past. Two brothers living very different lives might have more in common than they think.

The film was produced by Mike Donnelly and Dave Leahy with Liam Ryan as associate producer, Rory Gilmartin serving as executive producer for Element Pictures and Lesley McKimm as executive producer for Screen Ireland. Production support for the project came from the Screen Ireland and Windmill Lane Pictures.

‘Dublin Oldschool’ will be available to stream on Netflix from June 1st.
