The Crooked Mile

twenty-something medical school drop out, and their
search for a fifties movie icon in Tramore.

hottest young stars. Introducing Dayna McKiernan as
Anna – a streetwise outgoing kid. Alan Smith who
plays Elliot (burdened with Anna), and Clelia Murphy
as Jane, Anna’s somewhat distracted mother. Pat Mc
Grath also features as Anna’s distant dad in this
sweet and cosmic exploration of relationships based
around a trek from Dublin to Tramore.
Elliot’s reluctance to the journey is
superbly contrasted to Anna’s wistfulness and
enthusiasm. This captivating story intertwines
nostalgia with a search for something that only ever
existed in Anna’s mind and hopes.
