WPL Film Club @ The AIC: Ondine

March 30, 2023 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

ONDINE 2009, 111 minutes

No series involving Ireland would be complete without one film that touches upon the mythic. Ondine does this, but in a sardonic way, updated to the era of the European Union. Set on the coast of County Cork, Colin Farrell plays a bedraggled fisherman named Syracuse, whose sobriety is as tenuous as the respect his neighbors hold for him. One day Syracuse finds a woman in his fishing nets and his ailing daughter is convinced the woman is a legendary selkie––shorn of her seal-skin and returned to land speaking in a strange accent. What follows is a tale of redemption, with Syracuse the fisherman struggling to believe in fables when he hardly believes in himself.

BE ADVISED–– This film is rated PG-13, with smoking, drinking, profanity, sexuality, nudity, violence, and one very acid-tongued alum of Ballykissangel.
