In 'The Pier,' Gerard Hurley takes a poetic yet unsentimental look at the relationship between a father and son.
The award for the best male role is awarded to actor KARL JOHNSON in the film THE PIER for the role of the father. The actor uses his minimalistic style to display perfectly all the complexity of human emotions and leaves an important impression on this achievement.
Be aware that Gerard Hurley’s The Pier, a touching study of a returning Irish emigrant, will be playing at a few selected cinemas over the next few weeks. If you don’t catch it at the IFI this weekend then look towards Listowel, Skibbereen and Galway.
Cork filmmaker and screenwriter Gerard Hurley (The Pride) has decided to release his feature film ‘The Pier’ himself for a limited run in cinemas around the country.
