Life’s a Breeze is a feel-good ‘recession comedy’ about a family struggling to stay afloat and stay together through hard times in Ireland. Unemployed slacker Colm (Pat Shortt), his aging mother Nan (Fionnula Flanagan) and his niece Emma (Kelly Thornton) must overcome their many differences to lead their family in a race against time to find a lost fortune. Who said life’s a breeze?
The Galway Film Fleadh is delighted to present the world premiere of Life’s a Breeze as part of our 25th programme. Lance Daly’s latest is that rarest of things: a feel-good comedy that actually delivers on its promise. Featuring inspired performances from Fionnula Flanagan, Pat Shortt, Eva Birthistle and newcomer Kelly Thornton, Life’s A Breeze proves that, though the country may be bollixed, there’s still plenty to smile about in this life-affirming comedy.
