SPARROW DANCE Star Marin Ireland Set for Hampton's International Film Festival
Broadway's Marin Ireland (Neil LaBute’s reasons to be pretty, After Miss Julie) will appear at The Hampton's International Film Festival this weekend to promote her new film SPARROW DANCE. In the film, award-winning filmmaker Noah Buschel turns his lens on the confines of an NYC apartment in this charming and original love story.
Marin Ireland (Reason's to be Pretty,Homeland, The Killing) delivers a stunning performance as a woman struggling with tasks as simple as ordering Chinese take-out and getting her plumbing repaired. Wes, played by Paul Sparks, provides a comical and compassionate backdrop as Ireland’s plumber and romantic interest, balancing the emotional struggle of the agoraphobia that she faces throughout the film. "Sparrows Dance" is a delicate mixture of quirks, romance and drama, utilizing the physical space of a one-bedroom apartment to create an intricate world of solitude that extends far beyond its visible limits.
