On Wednesday, September 21 at 7pm, join directors Saela Davis and Anna Rose Holmer, producer Fodhla Cronin O’Reilly, and actors Emily Watson and Paul Mescal in person for a sneak preview, followed by a Q&A.
A mother’s duty to her son is put to the test in Saela Davis and Anna Rose Holmer’s atmospheric, psychologically intricate drama. Emily Watson stars as Aileen, a team-leader at a fish processing plant who oversees her workers with a maternal sense of duty, throwing herself into her work when her home life—cohabitating with her ornery husband Con (Declan Conlon), his catatonic brother Paddy and her adult daughter, Erin (Toni O’Rourke)—offers little reprieve. Her son Brian (Paul Mescal) returns after having spent several years in Australia with a plan to relaunch Paddy’s long-inactive oyster farm, and the feelings of uneasiness spurred by his reappearance grow unbearably intense when he’s accused of sexual assault, leading to Aileen negotiating her obligation to her son and her own sense of morality. Featuring an exceptional ensemble cast and evocatively, commandingly lensed by Chayse Irvin, God’s Creatures is a moral tale that feels at once contemporary and timeless. An A24 release.
