WATCH: This New Dublin-Based Gritty Crime Drama Is Getting Glowing Reviews

One to watch this weekend

Starring John Connors, of King of the Travellers and Love/Hate, Fionn Walton (Out of Here and What Richard Did) and Kierston Wareing (Fish Tank and EastEnders), Cardboard Gangsters is set to be the biggest film of the summer. 

The film follows a group of wannabe gangsters as they attempt to gain control of the drug trade in Darndale, chasing the glorified lifestyle of money, power and sex. 

Jay Connolly (Connors) is a part-time DJ and low-level drug dealer. When his welfare is cut off he decides it’s time for him and his gang to enter the big leagues. This attracts the attention of the local King Pin and sets Jay down a violent and bloody path.

Sound brilliant? 

It is. 

Cardboard Gangsters premieres in cinemas this Friday, June 16.
