Aoife McArdle’s Kissing Candice Released in Irish and UK cinemas, Friday 22 May

Posted: 21st June 2018

The visceral and thrilling coming-of-age drama Kissing Candice written and directed by Aoife McArdle will be released in Irish and UK cinemas on Friday 22nd June.

Kissing Candice stars Ann Skelly (Rebellion) as Candice, a 17-year-old who longs to escape the boredom of her seaside town, only finding solace in her vivid imagination. When a boy she dreams about (played by Ryan Lincoln, Cardboard Gangsters) turns up in real life, she becomes increasingly entangled with a dangerous local gang.

 

Kissing Candice shot on location in Dublin, Louth and Wicklow and had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last September. Since then it has been selected for numerous film festivals including the prestigious Generation strand of the Berlin Film Festival.

It’s the feature film debut from award-winning music video director Aoife McArdle and was produced by Andrew Freedman of Venom Films (His & Hers, Kelly & Victor, Making The Grade) and Sally Campbell of Somesuch with funding through the Irish Film Board’s Catalyst Scheme.

Kissing Candice will be released in Irish and UK cinemas from Friday June 22nd.
