Kieran O’Reilly as ‘Evan’.

A NEW Irish movie will be screened at Tralee Omniplex next month to support Recovery Haven and Kerry Cancer Support.

‘For Molly’ tells the story of a young Irish couple ‘Evan and Laura’, engaged to be married and preparing for the arrival of their first child ‘Molly’ when a shock cancer diagnosis arrives out of the blue to Evan.

Uncertain about the future Evan starts recording a series of home movie messages for Molly in an attempt to offer some helpful fatherly advice and a document of who he is for Molly when she is older.

The home movie recordings unintentionally end up capturing the emotional rollercoaster Evan and Laura go through as they come to terms with their predicament and events build towards a climax.

For Molly is Cathal Kenna’s sophomore feature film and came about for personal reasons.

“In recent times some of my close family and friends have been affected by cancer. ‘For Molly’ came about as a result of those experiences. With this film I hope we can highlight some important issues relating to cancer care and prevention by raising awareness particularly among younger sections of the population. I also hope the film will serve as a tool to promote the great work performed by local cancer support groups, services and advocates working to ensure that the best possible care is available to those experiencing the impact of the disease in Ireland.”

The movie will be screened in Tralee Omniplex on Friday, October 5 with further details closer to the screening.  See a trailer for the movie below…
