Metal Heart (2019)

  • Drama, Teen, Irish Film
  • 1h 28m

Fraternal twin sisters Emma (Jordanne Jones) and Chantal (Leah McNamara) are worlds apart. Emma is self-conscious, and unsure of which path to take in life; she dreams of starting a band (they have a pie-chart) with her best friend Gary (Seán Doyle), who secretly has a crush on her. Chantal, meanwhile, is beautiful, confident, and knows exactly where her life is headed.

When their parents go away for the summer, their simmering sibling rivalry threatens to boil over, especially when the mysterious next door neighbour (Moe Dunford) moves back in… Metal Heart is a laugh-out- loud coming of age comedy-drama about family and growing up, while also being poignant, sophisticated and wise.
