Bad Day For The Cut

Directed by Chris Baugh

A middle-aged Irish farmer, who still lives at home with his mother, sets off on a mission of revenge when the old lady is murdered.

7.00pm screening sold out. A second screening has been added at 7.15pm.

Donal is a farmer who still lives at home in a little Irish village with his mother Florence. He works the fields during the day and drinks in the local pub at night. He seems content with a simple, quiet life. The only sense we get of his wish for something more is an old campervan, which he has lovingly restored. When Florence is killed in an apparent home invasion Donal sets off for Belfast in the little red van, looking for revenge. What he finds is a world of violence and brutality that he can’t understand and a secret about his mother that will shake him to his core.

Main Cast:

Nigel O’Neill, Susan Lynch, Józef Pawlowski, Anna Próchniak and Stuart Graham

“Chris Baugh’s accomplished debut feature manages to develop its own distinct flavor while fitting snugly into the general tradition of latter-day U.K. gangster pics, with their rueful humor, colorful characters and realistically nasty violence.” VARIETY

An unusually soulful genre outing with an endearingly rumpled Nigel O’Neill as an ordinary man turned gun-totin’ vigilante. SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

“A powerful statement on the collateral damage that often accompanies the violent acts human beings commit against each other, Bad Day frames its emotional fallout with a raw honesty that elevates its crime thriller story.” DAILYDEAD.COM
