Aoife Crehan's Feature Debut 'The Last Right' Releases in Cinemas Nationwide
06 Dec 2019 : News Desk
The feature debut from Irish writer/director Aoife Crehan won the Audience Award at the 2019 Cork Film Festival and releases on Friday 6th December.

New York-based Daniel Murphy wakes on a flight home to Ireland for his Mum’s funeral to find the elderly passenger has died in the next seat. To his surprise the lonely Padraig had just listed him as his next of kin. In a bid to persuade his autistic brother Louis to return to New York with him, Daniel agrees to drive Padraig’s remains across the length of Ireland, from Cork to Rathlin Island, to be buried with his brother. 

Hitching a ride in the passenger seat is the funeral home temp Mary, who is on a mission to correct a drunken mistake. Meanwhile, the police realise Daniel has no business driving off with Padraig’s body, and Daniel, Mary and Louis find themselves the focus of a nationwide manhunt.

Crehan’s debut sees a star-studded ensemble cast, including Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones), Niamh Algar (The Virtues), newcomer Samuel Bottomley, and a supporting cast including Brian Cox (Succession; Troy), Colm Meaney (Intermission; The Journey) and Jim Norton (Father Ted). 

The Last Right was shot on location in Cork and produced by Paul Donovan for Deadpan Pictures, Pippa Cross for CrossDay Productions and Casey Herbert for Moonlight Bay Films, with financing by Screen Ireland, eOne, Northern Ireland Screen and Lipsync.
