You, Me and Marley

You, Me and Marley

Available on iTunes
This darkly humorous drama set in Northern Ireland centres around the Troubles, taking as its focus five Catholic youths whose lives are shaped by the violence that surrounds them. Wart, his girlfriend Frances and their friend Marley are joy riders. The nights are filled with car thefts, insane car rides in the stolen vehicles, fights and wild parties. Their lives are self-destructive and full of violence. The only things that mean anything to them are the solidarity with the group and the next crazy exploit they can come up with. After a meeting in which the Church and the IRA try to find a solution to the joyride epidemic, a devastating conflict flares up between the IRA representatives and the youths. The dark nature of the film is lifted only by the youngsters' slightly macabre sense of humour.
