An evening at the movies with The Wild Geese in NYC and The Yank!
A chairde, start gathering your friends: The 8th Annual Manhattan Film Festival will be screening The Yank, a comedy, at Quad Cinema on Monday June 23 at 5 PM Eastern.
Quad Cinema is located at 34 W.13th St # B, New York, NY.
Let's get together and show our support! Join us for dinner afterward at Central Bar, a brisk 10-minute walk way, at 109 East 9th Street. Info about that venue is available here.
The Yank, independently written, directed, and produced by Sean Lackey, has been described as "'Sideways' meets 'The Hangover' ... with an Irish flare."
Shot on location in Cleveland, Dublin and County Clare, "The Yank" tells the story of Tom Murphy, a middle-aged Cleveland bachelor. For Tom, "the perfect woman" is beautiful, hard-working, family-oriented and (like his parents) 100 percent Irish. So when his best friend, Marty, decides to get married in Ireland, Tom's family and friends send him off on a side- splitting epic adventure. Tom does not know it yet, but he's about to come face to face with the real Ireland!
It's a movie that most Irish Americans are certain to relate to in some way -- and find themselves in at least one character.
The Yank stars Colm Meaney ("The Commitments", "The Van", "Star Trek"), Fred Willard ("Best In Show"), Niki Spiridakos (“Blind Ambition”), Kevin Farley ("Tommy Boy"), Martin Maloney (“The Hardy Bucks Movie”), Nicole Forester (“Jack Reacher”, "Boss"), Charlotte Bradley ("Veronica Guerin") -- and introducing Sean Lackey.
