IFTA Members Preview Screening of 'Unless'
followed by Q&A with director Alan Gilsenan

  • Time:  6.15pm
  • Date:  7th June
  • Venue: Light House Cinema

The Irish Film & Television Academy are delighted to host a special preview screening of 'Unless' followed by a Q&A with Director Alan Gilsenan.

Reta Winters has many reasons to be happy. Her three almost-grown daughters. Her twenty-year relationship with their father. Her modest success as a writer. Then, suddenly, all the quiet satisfactions of her well-lived life disappear in a moment – her eldest daughter Norah suddenly drops out of college, runs from the family and is found on a Toronto street corner, with a hand-lettered cardboard sign reading ‘Goodness’ on her chest. Unless follows Reta and her family as they struggle first to ‘rescue’ Norah, then to understand her incomprehensible decision in taking this strange path.

Unless stars Catherine Keener as Reta, Matt Craven as Tom, Hannah Gross as Norah, Chloe Rose as Christine and Abigail Winter as Natalie
