Nick Rowland’s feature debut Calm With Horses will be released in UK and Irish cinemas on 13 March 2020. It looks like a punchy drama with a powerful performance from Cosmo Jarvis.
The mighty Michael Fassbender is one of the producers of this Irish pic, which co-stars the brilliant Barry Keoghan. Keoghan is the real deal, an actor with serious chops.

Here’s the synopsis:
Ex-boxer Douglas ‘Arm’ Armstrong (Cosmo Jarvis LADY MACBETH, PEAKY BLINDERS) is the faithful and violent right-hand-man to the drug-dealing Devers clan, ready to dole out beatings at the whim of his best friend, and the family’s unpredictable protégé, Dympna (Barry Keoghan DUNKIRK, AMERICAN ANIMALS).
Arm’s struggle to find his place in the world has consequences on his relationship with his ex-girlfriend Ursula (Niamh Algar THE VIRTUES, THE LAST RIGHT) as she strives to find a better life for herself and their young son Jack.
