A Date With Shillelagh

Posted by

The film focuses on the misogynistic behavior within the entertainment industry. Highlighted in high profile allegations against media mogul Harvey Weinstein. This film production supports The Me Too Movement. Used as a hashtag on social media, Me Too spread virally in October 2017 in an attempt to demonstrate the widespread prevalence of sexual assaults and harassment, especially in the workplace. It followed soon after the sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

Starring Eleanor Burke (Jo), who appeared in the Oscar-nominated film “Kon Tiki”, and Lauren Cornelius (Karen), a regular with BBC Radio 4 drama, the story follows Jo’s dreams of fame. Failing to heed Karen’s warnings about slimeball music promoter Billy Tomkins (played by Peter McManus), Jo chances the dance with danger, to pursue her Rolls Royce road to stardom.

Directed by Jeff Stewart and Brian Johnston (UK)
