Produced by Foal Film Productions and Blinder Fims, the film stars an ensemble cast including Jackie Howe, Felix Malcolm Still, Mercedes Grower, Keith Allen, Freddie Jones and Stephen Taylor along with Fielding and Davis.

The film focuses on mother of two, Eileen, as the prospect of unexciting summer stretches out before her. A new relationship suddenly comes into her life, and briefly she blooms.  However the new boyfriend, a pot-smoking ex cricketer, has problems of his own. The film treads a line between darkness and humour as it moves from its beginning in a sedate suburban cricket club to its conclusion at a music festival.

Sounds interesting?  Well you can read more about the film and see a few pics on their facebook page.  The film’s website will go live in the next few days.  Come on Eileen is being screened at the Galway Film Fleadh on July 8th.  What’s more, the director will also be attending the screening, so if you’re in the vicinity why not pop in?  The Velvet Onion would love to hear all about it if you do.

    It’ll be interesting to see which country he pops up in! If the organisers of either event happen to be reading this, we’d love to know what you know.
