Friday: Maxine Peake @ Run & Jump

The established actress Maxine Peake will be attending the screening of Friday's Run & Jump, including addressing a Q&A session and attending a reception afterwards. Maxine Peake has played many characters on film, including Myra Hindley in the 2006 film See No Evil: The Moors Murders, and she has also starred in the tv series Shameless.  

Synopsis: Run & Jump follows Vanetia Casey, the spirited and impossibly optimistic centre of the Casey family, who is struggling to get life back to normal after her 38-year-old husband suffers a rare stroke that changes his personality. Entering the emotional fray is an American doctor who arrives in Ireland to stay with them for two months, his research grant providing the Caseys with essential financial aid. Vanetia is a dynamo, but with two young kids and both men in the house, she’s feeling bombarded and treats Ted and his study of Conor with resistance. Only when she observes Ted’s calming influence on the family does she begin to value his friendship, and, in return, Ted enjoys her heady, happy-go-lucky world. But Ted’s continued presence in the house sets the family on course for an emotional collision.

When she lands an audition for the lead role in a massive movie franchise based on the Prince of Chaos novels, she passionately seizes the opportunity. However, a sleazy agent trying to pimp her to the director pushes her to the other extreme. Determined to prove her strict professionalism, she starts second guessing Vincent’s motives.
