The Northern Ireland conflict may be simmering away in 1990s Derry (or Londonderry, depending on your preference), but 16-year-old Erin and her pals have troubles of their own to deal with. Looming bomb threats and political unrest play second fiddle to teenage dilemmas in this charming new coming-of-age comedy from Indian Summers and Being Human screenwriter Lisa McGee, who based much of the story on her own experiences growing up in the city.
It’s witty, charming and brimming with 90s nostalgia. And with Brexit talks centred on the issue of an Irish border once again, some might say
is rather timely, too.
Comedy set against the Troubles in early-1990s Northern Ireland. The start of a new school term gets off to a bad start for Erin when she wakes to find her cousin reading her diary. But there is worse to come when Granda Joe announces a bomb has been found on the bridge. Saoirse-Monica Jackson stars.
