Róise & Frank

1h 30m Comedy, Indie, Drama 2022

It has been two years since Róise lost the love of her life, her husband Frank. She is now isolated in grief, cut off from family and community. The arrival of a mysterious dog, who seems intent on connecting with Róise, heralds huge change but is it for the better? The dog loves sport and steaks, has a favourite armchair and an aversion to their neighbour, Donncha. Róise quickly realises that this dog is her beloved Frank, reincarnated.

While her son worries that his mother has lost her mind, the local community seem to embrace the idea of Frank’s return, especially as he coaches a shy local kid to become a star player for the school hurling team. Róise is happy once more but is there a real future for her with a dog-husband?

Exclusive Q&As have been recorded by the Irish Film Festival with the directing and acting talent. This Q&A is included in the price of your rental and will play after the film.
