CARDBOARD GANGSTERS
2017, 92 min, Ireland, Dir: Mark O'Connor

Director Mark O'Connor and writer-actor John Connors reteam for this gritty look at young toughs on the rise in a Dublin suburb. Jason Connolly (Connors) leads a group of young “Cardboard Gangsters” who chase the glorified lifestyle of money, power and sex as they attempt to gain control of the drug trade in Darndale. “O’Connor puts the pedal to the metal with this picture and drives it like he stole it, as they say – with some exhilarating results.” - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
