Element Pictures Distribution are delighted to announce that the Parallel Films production THE DELINQUENT SEASON is to be released in Irish cinemas on October 13th. Mark O‘Rowe’s feature directorial debut stars Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders, Dunkirk, Free Fire), Catherine Walker (Critical), Eva Birthistle (Brooklyn) and Andrew Scott (Spectre, Sherlock, Denial).

Writer/director O’Rowe has several key writing credits to his name, including the award-winning Intermission (IFTA winner for Best Script in 2003), Boy A (BAFTA-nominated in two categories), Perrier’s Bounty (2010) and Broken (nominated for Best Screenplay at BIFA 2012).

The Delinquent Season is produced by Alan Moloney (Siege of Jadotville, Intermission, Mary Shelley) and Ruth Coady (Siege of Jadotville, Mary Shelley) of Parallel Films. Executive producers are Dixie Linder and Nick Marston (Boy A, Broken, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell) of Cuba Pictures, and the film was shot on location in Dublin, with support from the Irish Film Board, RTE and BFI.

Speaking on the release, producer Alan Moloney commented that “We are very proud of Mark’s directorial debut and to be working with such a high calibre of Irish talent. I’m delighted that Element Pictures Distribution are releasing the film and that Irish audiences will have a chance to see it in cinemas this October.”

The Delinquent Season is a tense drama which revolves around two couples in suburban Dublin – Jim and Danielle and Yvonne and Chris. On paper, they both appear to live in marital bliss, until an altercation between one couple occurs and cracks begin to appear in both of these seemingly steady marriages. The Delinquent Season is an examination of love, lust and family relationships and asks the question how well do any of us really know each other?
