Perfect Date Night in Movies


Available to rent from November 9th on Virgin Movies from €4.99


Emmet Kirwan’s acclaimed play gets its long-deserved big-screen treatment with the writer himself leading the way – and suggestions that it’s one of the best features to come out of this country in years arrived quick-sharp! A poetic script combines with a banging soundtrack and surprisingly tender story to deliver an absolute treat; that the performances from Kirwan, long-time collaborator Ian Lloyd Anderson, and the likes of Seana Kerslake, Sarah Greene and Leah Minto also impress just means it shines all the brighter!

Rupert Everett redefines the term ‘passion project’ in a film where he is writer, director, and star – take a break, dude! The final days of Oscar Wilde’s life are explored in a tremendously sad, yet undeniably stylish, effort. Yes, you’ll need to have the Kleenex close at hand, but from the keen eye for period details to the clever call-backs to some of his more fruitful days, it’s a rewarding watch, where the love and care with which it was made are always on show.

The cinematic equivalent of a hearty stew, this post-war period drama is comfort food of the highest order when a cosy night in is on the cards! A romantic tale that takes full advantage of the scenic setting, there’s even a little humour and mystery woven into its otherwise overwhelming loveliness. Delicately crafted and deliciously realised, it’s a film you should definitely see – if you can remember the name, that is!

The age-old parents-v-children trope gets a fresh and funny update as a group of teenage girls find their prom night plans under challenge from the older generation. Packed to the brim with laugh-out-loud humour – and a lot more than the typical risqué fair to be found in most movies like this, too – the show is unapologetically stolen by the concerned guardians; Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz and John Cena perfectly dialled into the panic and pressure that might ring a bell or two for any parents watching!
