ODEON have teamed up with Wildcard Distribution to bring you an exclusive Preview Screening of 'Cardboard Gangsters' at ODEON Coolock on the 15th June at 7.00pm. Director and co-writer Mark O' Conner and Star and co-writer John Connors will both be in attendance on the night making this an event not to be missed.
Jay Connolly (Connors) is a part-time DJ and low-level drug dealer. When his welfare is cut off he decides it’s time for him and his gang to enter the big leagues. This attracts the attention of the local King Pin and sets Jay down a violent and bloody path.
Wowing festival audiences around the globe, the film picked up three awards at Manchester Film Festival (Best Actor, Best Feature Film and Film of the Festival) earlier this year and was awarded Outstanding Achievement in Filmmaking at the Newport Beach Film Festival in California last week where it was described as having “the feverish temperament of a Guy Ritchie picture, the ghetto angst of Danny Boyle’s 'Trainspotting', and the realism of Ken Loach and Mike Leigh’s finest films. Unflinching, sadistic, and unabashedly realistic.”
