Wildfire15

Dir. Cathy Brady | Ireland | 2020 | 1h 24m | Starring Nika McGuigan, Nora-Jane Noone, Kate Dickie

Two sisters are reunited after spending time apart while coming to terms with their mother’s sudden death. With the intense sisterhood reignited, their desire to unearth their family history is not welcomed by all within their close-knit community. A heartfelt Troubles-era drama about generational trauma featuring two hypnotic lead performances from Danika McGuigan and Nora-Jane Noone (The Magdalene Sisters).

Reviews

‘Brady makes her story feel fresh, alive, and specific, simmering with just-out-of-reach-dread, but also adorned by the very particular relationship at the film’s center.’
★★★★ Ryan Lattanzio, IndieWire

Plan your visit

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
