Rose Plays Julie

VTIFF Virtual Cinema presents ROSE PLAYS JULIE: A young adopted woman tracks down her birth mother only to be confronted by revelations that draw her into the dark world of her father. This is a film about digging up the past in more ways than one.   Like Molloy and Lawlor’s previous films, it, too, explores their recurrent, glitchy themes of identity/doubling and performance. But there are also strong undercurrents referring to Greek myths from Oedipus and Electra as well as King Agamemnon’s killing of one of goddess Artemis’ sacred stags. The film was shot on location in Dublin and Wicklow in the summer of 2018, its powerful soundtrack was originally composed and arranged by Irish composer, Stephen McKeon.
