The independent movie My Sailor, My Love, which was filmed on location in Achill, is set for it's Irish premiere at the Dublin International Film Festival on Thursday 2 March.
My Sailor, My Love was filmed on Achill Island and the Currane Peninsula in the summer of 2021, coincidentally at the same time that Martin McDonagh’s The Banshees of Inisherin was filming on Achill.
It is the English-language debut of Finnish director Klaus Härö, whose 2015 film The Fencer was nominated for the Golden Globes as well as Oscar shortlisted in the Best Foreign Film category.
It stars Scots actor James Cosmo and Ireland’s Bríd Brennan and Catherine Walker in a later-life love story involving a retired sea captain and a widowed housekeeper, and the impact it has on his adult children.
My Sailor, My Love will officially open in Irish and UK cinemas on 10 March.
