Variety the spice of Lenny’s life

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

“The most ex­cit­ing film­maker to come out of Ire­land since Neil Jor­dan,” is how in­ter­na­tional film trade pa­per Variety de­scribes di­rec­tor Lenny Abra­ham­son in its Cannes edi­tion. Tak­ing a cue from the fes­ti­val’s cel­e­bra­tion of its 60th edi­tion this year, Variety chose its “Cannes Fest Zest 60”, com­pris­ing ac­tors, pro­duc­ers, direc­tors, dis­trib­u­tors and sales agents from around the world.

Abra­ham­son ar­rives in Cannes this morn­ing for the world pre­miere of his new movie, Garage, in the pres­ti­gious Direc­tors Fort­night sec­tion to­mor­row evening. He will be joined by the film’s star, Pat Shortt, pro­ducer Ed Guiney, and screen­writer Mark O’Hal­lo­ran, who also col­lab­o­rated with Abra­ham­son on Adam &Paul.
