‘Sanctuary’ had its world premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh last July, where it was the closing film. The Galway Advertiser described it as “an utter joy of a movie”; Film Ireland called it “ambitious, innovative and deeply moving”; and Ray D’Arcy said
that “I can’t believe how good this movie is”.
Here is our trailer:
Here is a short synopsis of the film:
Larry and Sophie are in love. They bribe
the feckless Tom to book them into a hotel for an afternoon tryst and look forward to getting to know each other, like countless couples before them.
But Larry and Sophie aren’t any couple; they both have intellectual disabilities and Tom is their care worker. By attempting to be intimate, they aren’t just breaking the rules – they’re breaking the law.
Our poster is attached.
It would be great to see you there.
