The feature film Rewind on which I was an editor on is screening tonight at 9 on Tv3. The film was nominated for 3 Ifta’s with Amy Huberman winning Best Actress in 2011
The film is a dark psychological thriller and stars Amy Huberman and Alan Leech. The film had its world premiere at the 2010 Galway Film Fleadh where it went down really well and it was reviewed by the Irish Times critic Donald Clark who had this to say about it.
“Do you fancy yet more sinister goings on in further windswept, leafless country roads? If so, you might wish to seek out PJ Dillon’s fine debut as a feature director. Rewind stars Amy Huberman as a former alcoholic – now married to a suburban money-bags – whose life comes to shreds when a dangerous old boyfriend saunters back into town. Co- written by Ronan Carr, creator of the much-loved short Coolockland, Rewind has just enough story to occupy its lean 80 minutes: the reformed character is lured away for an ill-fated road trip. Rewind is, however, particularly remarkable for Dillon’s own flinty cinematography and for two fine lead performances. Huberman, shaky, mad-eyed and icy, confirms that – all that Bod-marrying noted – she fully deserves fame in her own right. Playing the bad penny, Allen Leach, hitherto cheekily charming in Man About Dog and Cowboys and Angels , demonstrates an unsuspected ability to lurk with menacing intent. The picture deserves to be seen commercially.”
