North Circular Road is a feature film written by award-winning writer Donal Nugent (www.donalnugent.com) and co-directed by Paul Heary
The film brings together an ensemble cast of established and up-and-coming actors in a clever and engaging comedy/drama that promises one of the best twists in recent movie history.
The film tells the story of Janice and Matthew, a young couple about to buy their dream home on Dublin’s North Circular Road. Janice is one of Ireland’s best-known weather forecasters. Having been through some difficult times, she is now trying to getting her personal and professional life back together.
Her sense of progress comes to an abrupt halt, however, when she encounters ghosts in her new home. Soon she finds a chilling drama being played out before her, as previous owner Peter psychologically tortures his wife and attempts to drive her to suicide.
Janice’s quest to understand what is happening ultimately forces her to come to terms with the secrets and evasions in her own life.
North Circular Road is at once a chilling drama exploring the depths of human behaviour and a warm, redemptive comedy with a message of love at its core.
The film will commence principal photography in late July/early August and is seeking to raise funds to support both our production and post-production costs.
This is a film that those involved feel compelled to make – and with your support the potential of this truly original story will be realised. If you want to put your footprint on the Irish film industry this year, put it on the North Circular Road!
