Rose Plays Julie15

It’s during a term studying animal euthanasia that veterinary student Rose (Ann Skelly) decides to contact Ellen (Orla Brady), the birth mother who gave her up for adoption. Ellen, who is now a successful London-based actress, doesn’t want to know. Undeterred, Rose will not be ignored, and her curiosity leads her to discover a series of revelations that shake the fragile identity she has built for herself. A slow-burn thriller that delves deep into longing and revenge from directing duo Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor, Rose Plays Julie is a frank, immersive exploration of the dark intersection between power and its abuses.
