Gritty yarn

The Mighty Celt

Shows: 4pm, Saturday, August 6, BCC

Superlative performances by enigmatic Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting) and robo-cool Gillian Anderson (X-Files) put the final sprinklings of stardust on to this gritty Irish yarn about a disinterested teen giving an awkward greyhound the Cinderella treatment.

This film opened the Dublin International Film Festival 2005. Meet the director Peter Elliot in a special director's screening.
