Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor's chilling Irish thriller follows Rose, a veterinary student searching for her biological parents. Her birth mother Ellen, now a successful London-based actress, doesn't want any contact. Undeterred, Rose will not be ignored, and her curiosity leads her to discover a series of dark revelations that shake her fragile identity. Believing she has little to lose, Rose engineers a way to confront her biological father, setting her on a collision course that will prove both violent and unsettling.

'Beneath the eerily calm surfaces of Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor's terrific "Rose Plays Julie," a transgressive story bides its time.' - Jessica Kiang, Variety

'Its emotional dilemmas, depictions of trauma, revenge and fractured family ties are handled with such skill and sense of purpose, it is truly exemplary film-making.' - Martyn Conterio, Cinevue
