Best selling author and playwright, Paul O’Brien makes his debut as a film-maker with his amazingly raw and beautiful terrier of a movie, Staid. Although set in Ireland, its themes are universal centrepieces of love, loss, ambition and that feeling of being stuck in life. Four small-town people, tied together by new and old relationships, come together to tangle, fight, sing, talk, smoke, drink, argue, laugh, leave and return — and stumble towards the reality that their lives are finally changing, whether they like it or not. The story unfolds in a unique, lush package that hangs together so well because of the the craft of the script; the amazing performances and the gentleness of the storytelling. To see all of these characteristics come together makes this movie irresistible.
“Staid signals the arrival of a new, important voice in Irish cinema.” – New York Times Bestselling author, Eoin Colfer
