Producer Tim Palmer (Into the West, Patrick's Day ) gives us a first look at Artwork for the much anticipated 'The Limit Of' ahead of its cinema release on April 5th. NUIG graduate turned ex-banker is the writer-director behind new gripping psychological thriller, which features Cork-born singer Mick Flannery as the exclusive artist on the film's soundtrack. It stars the fast-rising Laurence O'Fuarain (Vikings, Black 47 ) and the stunning IFTA nominated actress Sarah Carroll.
'The Limit Of', which premiered at the Galway Film Fleadh to critical acclaim, is a story that is very much rooted in Director Alan Mulligan’s career as a successful banker during the Celtic Tiger years and it’s crushing aftermath. The film captures the rapacious greed of the financial world and society’ ever-growing need for control. Mulligan’s slow, deliberate style builds a fever pitch of intensity as the film reaches its shocking climax.
Laurence O'Fuarain who plays the central character James Allen, a controlling disconnected banker, had this to say “I fell in love with James’s character from my first reading of Alan’s script. It was a unique opportunity to play a character that reflects the new city (Dublin ) and pressures that many of my peers now work in. I cannot wait for Irish audiences to meet James in Cinemas from April 5th
THE LIMIT OF features breakout performance for both lead actors, Sarah Carroll and Laurence O’Fuarain. Carroll was nominated for a Best Actress IFTA, with RTÉ critic Michael Doherty praising ‘a smart, contemporary thriller with a striking performance from Sarah Carroll’.
Sarah Carroll who plays Alison, James Allen's nemesis as such had this to say ''From my first scenes with Laurence I knew we were making a special film. To have been nominated for an IFTA for my performance was an amazing experience but now for the film to be getting a cinema release is the real cast and crew award and something I'm very proud of”
