In his debut feature film The Sparrow Michael Kinirons explores the phycological struggle of a teenage boy dealing with unbearable guilt exacerbated by his dysfunctional family situation.
The film centres on Kevin (Ollie West), a melancholic boy still grieving for his late mother and finding little consolation from his tough, emotionally distant father (David O’Hara) or from his older brother (Eanna Hardwicke).
Produced by Tiger Darling, the production company Michael runs with his wife, producer Alicia Ní Ghráinne, the film is set in and around the picturesque West Cork village of Baltimore.
