★★★★★ - "Rosie is a five-star treat" - Stuff

ROSIE tells the story of a mother trying to protect her family after their landlord sells their rented home and they become homeless.

Over 36 hours, Rosie and her partner John Paul strive to find somewhere to stay while shielding their young family from the reality of the situation around them. Rosie examines how even in times of crises; the love and strength of a family can endure.

In Rosie, award-winning Irish novelist Roddy Doyle brings his signature brand of warmth and authenticity to a modern story of a Dublin family who have found themselves with nowhere left to go. Hailed as the most important Irish film of the year, Rosie follows a young mother (Sarah Greene) as she searches to find a room for the night for her family – a tense race against time as the hours count down and their options run out. Set over 36 hours, Rosie tracks a normal family faced with impossible choices and exposes just how easy it is to slip through the cracks. Directed by Paddy Breathnach, Rosie is a cinematic tour de force about love, family and how you protect your children when you have nowhere to call home.
