The Irish Coastal Club, in partnership with The United Theatre presents the first-annual Westerly Irish Film Fest. Leading up to Saint Patrick’s Day, we’ll be showcasing three films from the land of saints and scholars – the new, charming Irish-language comedy Róise & Frank (2023); the now classic, beautifully animated family film Song of the Sea (2014); and the sweet and quietly eloquent Herself (2020). Tickets to each film are $10 – sold individually. The Irish Coastal Club is a Rhode Island non profit social club that enjoys sharing Irish culture with the community through a variety of special events and classes in all aspects of Irish heritage. In Róise & Frank, grief-stricken Róise lost her husband, Frank, two years ago. Her son, Alan, worries about her but the arrival of a mysterious dog seems to bring happiness to her life once more. Róise soon comes to believe that the dog is, in fact, Frank reincarnated. He has come back to be with her again… and to coach the local sports team.
