Worn out, played out and strung out – ten Years after Punk band Crust split up, the band members’ lives have fallen apart.
Drummer Bonehead has just been released from prison and sets about reforming the band for one last show – a great new feature film written and directed by Baz Black (Kin and founder of Sure Look Productions).
In fact, Baz’s wife Emma (Ray) edited and produced the film which was shot on a shoe string (“zero budget”) over seven days in 32 locations across Dublin, Drogheda and Dundalk.
Described as the feel-good movie of the Year, Dublin Crust is like Trainspotting meets The Commitments and has an illegitimate love child with The Full Monty!
Incredibly despite no funding secured and against all the odds, Baz has secured a nationwide cinema release with both Omniplex and Odeon Cinemas from Friday, September 1 next.
“We don’t have a marketing budget and we are counting on word of mouth, social media and press coverage – so we appreciate the support of the Dublin Gazette” said William Morgan, who stars as Sonny in the lead role. “It was made with great enthusiasm but on a wing and a prayer budget wise!
“Among a cast of about 50, we also have Joe Rooney and Rose Henderson (both Fr Ted)” said William, a native of Tallaght and now living in Kinsealy.
The film opens nationwide at selected Omniplex Cinemas from Friday, September 1, with an advanced screening in Drogheda on August 30. From Friday, September 15, it opens at selected Odeon Cinemas nationwide (with a sold out advanced screening on September 13 at their Point Square location)
The film will be the official opening screening at the 14th Dublin Underground Film Festival on Friday, September 8 in The Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire. It has already achieved top accolades as the Best of Festival Awardat The Swindon Independent Film Festival and Best International Feature Film at the South Coast Film Festival in Hastings.
A special screening with Q & A will take place in The Whale Theatre, Greystones on September 14 but alas, it’s already sold out but an additional date has been added for Friday 15 due to demand.
