Element Distribution to Release 'A Bump Along The Way' on August 30th

Element Distribution has announced that it will release Shelly Loveís debut feature comedy A Bump along the Way to Irish cinemas on 30th August.

Starring Bronagh Gallagher (The Commitments, Pulp Fiction) and Lola Petticrew (Come Home), A Bump along the Way will screen at the 31st Galway Film Fleadh on Saturday 13th July where Petticrew is also nominated for The Bingham Ray New Talent Award.

A Bump along the Way tells the story of fun-loving, 44-year-old single mum Pamela (Gallagher) who becomes pregnant following a one-night-stand, much to the shame of her buttoned-up teenage daughter Allegra (Petticrew).  As Pamela deals with the prospect of becoming a mum for the second time and the growing pains of the disgruntled Allegra, the challenges they face along the way bring mother and daughter to a better understanding of themselves and each other.

Filmed entirely in Derry and led by an all-female creative team, A Bump Along The Way is directed by Shelly Love, written by Tess McGowan, produced by Louise Gallagher and executive produced by Roma Downey.  The film was funded by Northern Ireland Screen and Yellowmoon.

Speaking on the acquisition, Love said: “I couldn't be more delighted that Element Distribution will be handling our film for distribution throughout Ireland. Having held Element in such high regard for some time I know our film will be in safe hands.  I am really excited to see how things will develop.

“Shelly, Tess and Louise have created a wonderful, heart-warming comedy in A Bump Along The Way and we are delighted to work with this talented bunch of creative women in bringing the film to Irish audiences from August 30th,” said Karen O’Malley of Element Distribution.

Ahead of the films Aug 30th release, Galway Film Fleadh audiences can enjoy A Bump Along The Way’s festival screening on Saturday 13th July at 17.45 in Town Hall Theatre.
