The Bright Side
Cynical stand-up, Kate, has lost her way, but she gains friends and a new perspective on life, when she goes through cancer treatment with an unlikely band of companions. Ruth Meehan’s comedy drama is a funny and poignant debut feature. The director draws on the personal experience of herself and her crew, to deliver a believable story of everyday women - thrown together in the worst circumstances, finding the best in themselves and each other. Ruth Meehan is returning to EIFF with her first feature after winning a commendation for her short film, Numb. A warm, amusing and moving new Irish film from a director to watch.
