SANCTUARY

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS/FILM - TB

Di­rected by Len Collin. Star­ring Kieran Cop­pinger, Char­lene Kelly, Robert Do­herty, Michael Hayes, Emer Macken, Paul Con­nolly

Truly lovely ro­man­tic com­edy star­ring the in­tel­lec­tu­ally dis­abled ac­tors from Gal­way’s Blue Teapot The­atre Com­pany. Larry (Cop­pinger) and So­phie (Kelly) are in love and keen to book into a ho­tel for some alone time. Trou­ble is, both par­ties have in­tel­lec­tual dis­abil­i­ties and, un­less they are mar­ried, alone time is likely in breach of sec­tion 5 of the Crim­i­nal Law (Sex­ual Of­fences) Act, 1993. (Since amended.) The jokes are sound. The per­for­mances are great. The heart is warmed. 15A cert, lim re­lease, 90 min
