Emily Watson and Paul Mescal.
Emily Watson and Paul Mescal will lead the cast of A24’s psychological drama God’s Creatures, which is backed by BBC Films, Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland, and the Western Regional Audiovisual Production Fund (WRAP Fund).

Currently filming on location in Donegal, the feature film unites Directors Saela Davis and Anna Rose Holmer after their award-winning drama The Fits. Starring Emily Watson and Paul Mescal in the leading roles, God’s Creatures is set in a rain-swept Irish fishing village where a woman’s lies to protect her son have a devastating impact on the community, her family, and herself.

The film was written by Shane Crowley and is being produced by Fodhla Cronin O’Reilly following her award-winning and critically acclaimed successes Ammonite and Lady Macbeth. 

A24 has taken worldwide rights and is co-financing alongside BBC Films, Screen Ireland, and the WRAP Fund with location support from the Donegal Film Office.

Watson’s credits include Chernobyl and Breaking The Waves, while Mescal recently garnered Emmy and Critics’ Choice Award nods for his role as Connell in Normal People. Aisling Franciosi co-stars, following her award-winning performances in The Nightingale and TV series The Fall, and other cast members include Declan Conlon (Calvary), Marion O’Dwyer (Love, Rosie), and Toni O’Rourke (Wildfire). 

Other talent involved include local production manager Maria Mulhall (Lola) and production designer Inbal Weinberg (Beasts of No Nation, Three Billboard Outside Ebbing), editor Julia Bloch (Green Room) and director of photography Chayse Irvin (BlacKkKlansman, Hannah).

The Directors’ previous film The Fits premiered at 2015 Venice Film Festival and played Sundance the following year. It earned Spirit Awards and Gotham Awards nominations and won the Critics Award at Deauville Film Festival.
