Irish Film Institute -IRELAND ON SUNDAY: TAX CITY
The film screening will be followed by a Q&A with Begley, and with Steve Collins who will be appearing in advance of an imminent grudge fight with former World Champion, Roy Jones Junior.
Ireland on Sunday is our monthly showcase for new Irish film.
In a departure from our usual form, this month’s Ireland on Sunday screening features a short drama film followed by a long interview with stellar cast and crew
Tax City is a muscular new drama directed by U.K.-based Irish-born Tom Begley and written and produced by Andy Nolan. Set in 1990s’ London, Tax City follows the sensational comeback of rock star Johnny Costa (Jon Campling), his tragic fall from grace and his perilous fight for survival on the streets of London. Costa is forced to confront Fintan (played by former-World-Champion-boxer-turned-actor Steve Collins) the brutal leader of a real life, Irish-dominated Taxing Squad gang that preys on the homeless community.
Worth seeking out, if you are in Dublin tomorrow.
