Directed by: Nick Rowland
Starring: Barry Keoghan, Cosmo Jarvis, Niamh Algar

When a former boxer is offered a gig as an enforcer with the local drug mafia, life seems on the up — but the demands weigh heavily as he makes inroads with his autistic young son, in Nick Rowland’s sometimes harrowing crime film. Evoking the early work of Neil Jordan, Calm with Horses – adapted from the short stories by Colin Barrett – is a brooding and frequently brutish experience with a world weary fatalism just about counter-balanced by the seeds of hope.
