Irish black comedy Pixie looks like a lot of fun. Starring Olivia Cooke, Ben Hardy, Daryl McCormack, Colm Meaney, Dylan Moran and Chris Walley – the film gets extra points because it also features the mighty Alec Baldwin.
Written by Preston Thompson and directed by Barnaby Thompson, Pixie seems like it makes good use of its Irish setting. It opens in the UK and Ireland on 23 October:
Pixie (Olivia Cooke) wants to avenge her mother’s death by masterminding a heist, but her plans go awry and she finds herself on the run with two young men (Ben Hardy, Daryl McCormack) who are way out of their depth being chased across the Wild Irish countryside by… deadly gangster priests. She has to pit her wits against everyone, taking on the patriarchy to claim the right to shape her own life.
