Louder than Bombs set for Belltable screening

Gabriel Byrne stars in Louder than Bombs

THIS Wednesday evening, the Belltable will screen newly-released acclaimed film, Louder than Bombs, starring Gabriel Byrne and Isabelle Huppert.

An aging schoolteacher (Byrne) grappling with the recent death of his photographer wife (Huppert) attempts to reconcile with his two very distinct sons (Jesse Eisenberg and Devin Druid). It is the first English-language feature by acclaimed Norwegian director, Joachim Trier.

With his co-writer and long-time collaborator Eskil Vogt, Trier expertly shuttles between different timeframes and character perspectives as he investigates the dynamics of a troubled family.

His last-chance bid for reconciliation is made all the more urgent by an upcoming, posthumous exhibition of Isabelle’s work, which may lead to a public revelation of some of the family’s darker secrets.

Louder than Bombs will be screened at the Belltable at 8pm. Tickets cost €8.
