Watch Trailer for Hugh O'Conors' Debut Feature 'Metal Heart' In Cinemas on June 28th
23 May 2019 : Nathan Griffin
Jordanne Jones in 'Metal Heart'.
The first look trailer has been released for ‘Metal Heart’ ahead of its Irish cinematic release on June 28th.

The hilarious coming of age comedy-drama about family and growing up is directed by prolific Irish actor Hugh O’Conor’s and stars Jordanne Jones, Leah McNamara, Moe Dunford, Seán Doyle and Aaron Heffernan.

Speaking on the upcoming release, director Hugh O’Conor said:

"I'm over the moon that METAL HEART will be seen on the big screen this summer. I've loved working with Treasure on it, and it's such an honour to be working with Break Out Pictures on their first official release. We had such a great cast and crew; we just hope Irish audiences enjoy it as much as we did making it!"

‘Metal Heart’ tells the story of fraternal twin sisters Emma and Chantal who are worlds apart. Emma is self-conscious and unsure of which path to take in life - she dreams of starting a band (they have a pie-chart) with her best friend Gary, who secretly has a crush on her. Chantal, meanwhile, is beautiful, confident, and knows exactly where her life is headed. When their parents go away for the summer, their simmering sibling rivalry threatens to boil over, especially when the mysterious boy next door moves back in...

The film is written by Paul Murray and produced by Claire McCaughley and Rebecca O’Flanagan for Treasure Entertainment with backing from Screen Ireland, RTÉ, Head Gear Films and Bank Side Films.

The film is being distributed by the newly founded Break Out Pictures and will release in Irish cinemas on June 28th.
