The film stars Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones) as Will, who is released from prison on compassionate leave to care for his niece Stacey (Lauran Kinsella; Albert Nobbs), after the death of her mother. As they both head into the sleepy Irish midlands and attempt to be a family, they suffer a series of setbacks. Stacey is refused admission to the local school because of her recently developed narcolepsy; Will repeatedly comes close to breaking his prison-ordered curfew; and his attempts at being a father figure to her prove disastrous…
YOU’RE UGLY TOO had its world premiere earlier this year at the prestigious Berlin International Film Festival where it was praised by critics and audiences alike with the Hollywood Reporter commenting that “the film showcases lovely, unforced performances from Aidan Gillen and Lauren Kinsella .”
