This beautifully filmed Irish yarn is a corny but touching fable about rural kindness, writes Donald Clarke
accompanying subplots and diversions. Allusions to Bichir’s adventures at home are infuriatingly muddled. The decision to subtitle the Traveller characters is certain to raise a few hackles. But The Runway remains a touching tribute to a vanished epoch that – until last Wednesday or so – still seemed within touching distance. A strong debut.
