Stones in His Pockets

by Marie Jones
directed by Abigail Isaac Fine

In this wickedly funny tragicomedy, Jake and Charlie meet when working as extras on a big American movie being shot in Ireland. Charlie’s video shop in Ballycastle has gone bankrupt and Jake has returned to Kerry after a futile few years in the US. The movie is a wonderful break from worrying about their futures…until the harsh realities of rural life break through.

“STONES IN HIS POCKETS … is serious comedy. It allows audiences to laugh about something as grave as the last gasp of someone’s hopes and dreams.”  – The New York Times
