'Mad’ Mary McArdle returns home after a short spell in prison—for something she’d rather forget. Back home, everything and everyone has changed. Her best friend, Charlene, is about to get married and Mary is maid of honor. When Charlene refuses Mary a ‘plus one’ on the grounds that she probably couldn't find a date, Mary becomes determined to prove her wrong. But her attempts at dating are a disaster and she winds up feeling more alone... until she meets Jess and everything changes. A Date for Mad Mary is a tough and tender story about friendship, first love, and letting go of the glory days. Won the Dublin Film Critics Circle Award for Best Irish Film in 2016, Best Irish Feature Film at the 2016 Galway Film Fleadh, and Best Film at the 2017 Irish Film and Television Awards.
