Fleadh an­nounces its book­enders

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS -

There is a lit­tle less than a month to go be­fore the Galway Film Fleadh, one of the na­tion’s big­gest arts bashes, kicks off. We have news. John Car­ney’s Be­gin Again, his de­light­ful, long-awaited US fol­low-up to Once, is to open the event and Tom Collins’s Ir­ish-lan­guage thriller An Brontan­nas will be the clos­ing film.

Be­gin Again stars Keira Knight­ley as a woman mop­ing about a gor­geous ver­sion of New York while re­cov­er­ing from a break-up. Mark Ruf­falo, Cather­ine Keener and Mos Def are also on board. Collins, who gave us one of the best ever Ir­ish-lan­guage fea­tures in Kings, sets his new film among a lifeboat crew work­ing in Connemara. This year’s Fleadh runs from July 8th un­til July 13th.
