Based on Colin Murphy‘s stage play and directed by Ian Power (The Runway), The Guarantee recreates the drama surrounding the most significant political decision in modern Irish history when the Irish government decided to guarantee the entire domestic banking system.
The film stars Peter Coonan (as David Drumm), David Murray (Brian Lenihan), Orla Fitzgerald (Kate Walsh), Gary Lydon (Brian Cowen), and Morgan Jones (Sean Fitzpatrick).
«It is a story which covers the entire gamut of the human experience — Ian Power said — There is a hunger in Irish people to see a clear, unbiased version of this story. In the past months I’ve watched every member of our wonderful cast and crew come on board with a sense that this job is different, that we are doing something important and special.»
«This is the story that we’ve all been talking about for the past six years, it’s the story we all have opinions on — it is, in short, our story», Colin Murphy adds.
The Guarantee is being produced by John Kelleher Media in association with the BAI, the Irish Film Board and TV3 (which will broadcast the film after the theatrical release). This is the first cinematic feature film to be shot in TV3’s Sony HD Studio.
Wildcard Distribution has worldwide distribution rights to the film.
