Actor Chris Walley will be in Luxembourg to answer questions at this screening of “The Young Offenders” as part of the St Patrick’s Day celebrations in the Grand Duchy.
Directed and written by Peter Foott, this is a comedy about two lovable rogues in Cork city who dream of riches. When they learn of a haul of cocaine being washed ashore in West Cork, it sets in motion a chain of capers as the two cycle 160km on stolen bikes pursued by police to find a missing bale of cocaine worth €7 million.
Inspired by the true story of Ireland's biggest cocaine seizure in 2007, the film uses anecdotes from a trip Foott made to West Cork in his youth.
This film grossed €1m plus at the Irish box office. Head over to the Cinémathèque to find out why.
