Brand new Irish crime thriller Broken Law hits cinemas today

Would you do this for your family?

Having already won over the audience at its World Premiere earlier this year and excited fans with its teaser trailer just a few weeks back, Broken Law is now available for you to watch in the comfort of a newly-reopened and socially-distanced Irish cinema near you.

The gritty new thriller from award-winning director Paddy Slattery tells the story of the Connollys, two estranged brothers on opposite sides of the law.

Dave (Tristan Heanue), a respected member of the Guards, has his life turned upside down when his criminal brother Joe (Graham Earley), is released from prison and immediately falls in with the wrong crowd.

The film also co-stars Gemma-Leah Devereux as Amia, a woman who stumbles into the brothers' lives in the most unexpected way, and Cardboard Gangsters and Love/Hate star John Connors as local criminal Wallace.

Ahead of the film's release, we caught up with Paddy to chat about the madness of feature filmmaking, as well as Irish audiences' obsession with crime thrillers, the future of cinema-going and the perfect post-lockdown popcorn movie.
