Adam & Paul is widely considered one of the greatest Irish films of the last 50 years. Originally released in 2004, it is dark, funny, and touching and quickly earned a cult status amongst cinema fans.
The film follows the two eponymous Dublin drug addicts through their woebegone existence, with their entire life apparently dedicated to getting to the relief of their next high. In the course of the story, they finally run out of whatever kind of luck they had going for them.
Directed by the Oscar-nominated Lenny Abrahamson, and with starring turns from Mark O’Halloran – who also wrote the screenplay and who will introduce this screening – and the late Tom Jordan Murphy, Adam & Paul is a film which is at once a film inherently of Dublin, and one that strikes universal themes.
