Directed by Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor
Gerry Devine (Aidan Gillen) finds himself half way around the world, in the intense heat and humidity of Singapore, coping with the twin aftermaths of his brother John’s death and his wife’s recent infidelity..
After viewing his dead brother’s body, Gerry meets John’s widow Kim (Zoe Tay) and visits ‘Mister John’s’, the bar that the couple operated. Gerry is surprised by the life John had made for himself in South East Asia. A life Gerry knew little about and one that incrementally looks a lot more appealing than his troubled life back home…
Mister John was nominated for the Edinburgh International Film Festival’s Michael Powell Award for Best British Feature.
