SONGS FOR AMY (2014) 103 MINS
This feel good, freewheeling, testosterone fuelled love story is inspired by the music scene of the west of Ireland. The story follows Galway-based Sean O’Malley (Sean Maguire), a struggling musician who coerces his band (Lost and Sound) to record 7 songs he has written for the love of his life, Amy (Lorna Anderson) in the hope of redeeming himself. The album’s production takes him on a rollercoaster journey of friendship, love, loss, music, hope and unexpected turns where he is both helped and hindered by his misfit band mates. Featuring an original soundtrack by up and coming song writers Ultan Conlon, Jim McKee and Alabama 3, this film gives an authentic impression of life in a touring band in contemporary Ireland.
