The Stag - Trailer
Director John ButlerYear 2014Genre(s) Comedies
It's usually the bride that enjoys organising every little detail for their wedding, but in Ruth and Fionnan's relationship, planning the nuptials has become the only thing that guarded perfectionist Fionnan thinks about. However, concerned about his increasing seriousness and his hatred of adventure, Ruth enlists his best friend Davin to organise a stag night on a mountain. Fionnan eventually warms to the idea of a wildlife trek. that is until Ruth mentions that her ruthless brother The Machine is coming along too. Coping with The Machine becomes an uphill struggle when he throws away the stag group's compass and gets them lost, sets their tent on fire and insists on a nude streak through the woodland that almost gets them shot. But is he a blessing in disguise for strait-laced Fionnan, who may find this trip more of a milestone than a stag?
'The Stag' is a witty Irish comedy not far from the sort of antics we saw in 'The Hangover' trilogy. It has been directed by John Butler ('Your Bad Self', 'Immaturity for Charity') and co-written by his former writing partner and Oscar nominee Peter McDonald. The movie is set to be released to UK audiences in Spring 2014.
