Rosie
Central High School Auditorium Thu, Aug 1 3:00 PM
A beautiful but heartbreaking portrait of an Irish working class family facing the same difficult question confronting families around the world: where will we sleep tonight? The film follows Rosie, a dedicated mother of four who, between drop offs at school and entertaining the youngest, spends her time on the phone trying to find at least a one night’s stay at a motel. As the days since their eviction march on, this task becomes increasingly difficult, and Rosie’s desperation grows as she’s faced with the reality of the entire family having to spend nights crammed in the car. Set in Dublin, though the story echoes the housing crisis in cities everywhere, writer Roddy Doyle (The Commitments) and director Paddy Breathnach (Viva, TCFF 2016) brilliantly capture the strength of a parent’s love, and reminds us how vital the cinema is as an empathy generator.
