Reefer and the Model

1h 20m Drama, Irish Film 1988

Comerford’s signature sharp realism infuses this drama about Reefer (Ian McElhinney), an ex-IRA man who picks up hitch-hiker Teresa (Carol Scanlan), a pregnant woman trying to overcome a drug addiction. They head to the trawler where he lives with friends Spider (Sean Lawlor) and Badger (Ray McBride). The makeshift family are forced to turn to crime to make a living.

A new digital restoration of the 2023 Director’s Cut.
