Passion – Irish Premiere (NC) Book Tickets
97 mins – Germany/France 2012 – Dir: Brian De Palma
Starring: Noomi Rapace, Rachel McAdams and Paul Anderson
In association with Metrodome Distribution, Triskel Christchurch is delighted to present the Irish Premiere of Passion, the latest film from maverick director Brian De Palma. With a filmography that includes such cinematic icons as Carrie, Dressed To Kill, Scarface, The Untouchables and Carlito’s Way, De Palma has proven to be a masterful visual storyteller and his latest film is no exception.
When ruthless executive Christine (Rachel McAdams – Midnight In Paris) crosses the line by stealing ideas from her admiring protégée Isabelle (Noomi Rapace – The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), a vicious cat-and-mouse game takes place between the two women. Imagine a modern-day Bette Davis and Joan Crawford vehicle with Hitchcock-like twists and turns, and that comes some way to accurately describing this stylish and wickedly humorous thriller.
Christopher O’Neill, Head Of Cinema at Triskel Christchurch, will give an illustrated talk entitled ‘The De Palma Thriller’ after the screening. Ticket holders are invited to stay for this event.
