Calm With Horses trailer: Barry Keoghan is the head of a violent drug-dealing gang
Young Irish actor Barry Keoghan quickly made a name for himself with a number of strong performances in films like The Killing of a Sacred Deer and Dunkirk and returns as the star of Calm With Horses. A gritty drama based in Ireland, the film played at LFF last year and has so far picked up very strong reviews across the board. Cosmo Jarvis (Lady Macbeth) plays a pivotal role in the film, serving as the moral compass for the audience. Watch the first trailer for Calm With Horses above.
Ex-boxer Douglas 'Arm' Armstrong is the faithful and violent right-hand-man to the drug-dealing Devers clan, ready to dole out beatings at the whim of his best friend, and the family's unpredictable protégé, Dympna. Arm's struggle to find his place in the world has consequences on his relationship with his ex-girlfriend Ursula as she strives to find a better life for herself and their young son Jack.
This is director Nick Rowland's debut feature, with the supporting cast featuring Cosmo Jarvis and Niamh Algar.
Calm With Horses gallops into UK cinemas on March 13, with a US date still to be announced.
