Arracht – Glasgow Film Theatre at Home


Monday 23 November, 2020

Tom Sullivan’s Arracht took Glasgow Film Festival 2020 by storm earlier this year, picking up the coveted Audience Award.

This immensely impressive debut evokes the desperate times of the 1840s Irish potato famine with a flinty, bone-chilling authenticity. On the wild shores of Ireland’s west coast, fisherman Colman Sharkey (Dónall Ó Héalai) works hard to provide for his family. He extends a hand of hospitality to Patsy (Dara Devaney), a former soldier in the Napoleonic wars. No good deed goes unpunished. As the famine destroys livelihoods and the English landowners show no mercy, there is a night of reckoning that casts Colman into exile and leaves him in search of atonement.
