Rent Come Down Molly from Sun 18 April for €4 through Triskel Vimeo On Demand. Access for 72 hours after purchase (available worldwide).
Taking place five years after the events depicted in Northeast, Gregory Kohn’s second feature finds Molly and Patrick now married and with a young child. All is not well, however, since Molly (Eléonore Hendricks) struggles to cope with motherhood. She takes off to join an old high school group of male friends at a secluded mountain home. Amidst tears, laughter, and magic mushrooms, they connect with nature, one another, and themselves. Shot in a crisp visual style which nicely captures the stunning Colorado landscapes, Come Down Molly features a screenplay peppered with sly wit and is anchored by a vulnerably moving performance from Hendricks.
Triskel Presents – The Films Of Gregory Kohn
Welcome to the first instalment of ‘Triskel Presents’. While we are currently unable to present movies as a collective experience at Triskel Arts Centre, we have created this online initiative that our patrons can enjoy.
‘Triskel Presents’ will be a mixture of independent features and short films which can be rented from our Triskel On Demand Service, as well as a series of visual essays produced by our head of cinema Chris O’Neill, which will be available to view for free on the Triskel YouTube Channel and Vimeo Channel.
We begin with a season of films by Gregory Kohn, an American director whose low-key character studies can be disarmingly simple and immensely effective. As filmmaker and programmer Maximilian Le Cain states in the text here, Kohn is “a master of ambivalence and a filmmaker of tremendous subtlety with a unique approach to storytelling”.
