Tommy Creagh's latest work, " Land of Winter" shows a lot of promise from the director/ writer as well as the lead actor Declan O Connor. I caught it recently at the Vienna Independent Film Festival and I was quite impressed at the quality of the filmmaking as well as the principal actors. Creagh pays tribute to James Joyce with an evocative tale of a young man who is feeling lonely and adrift as he spends another night in Dublin alone and without any purpose. Declan O'Connor is perfectly cast as the soulful and gentle writer who reflects upon the coming snowstorm as an ominous sign of more hardship coming his way. Alone in a bar he meets a girl who might lighten his mood, but even she has trouble penetrating his lonely soul. This film captures young angst perfectly, and I wanted to know more about these chapters. Will Polly ( Quite cheerfully played by a spunky Caitriona Ennis ) make a second date? Try to catch it.
