First look at the feature debut from writer/director Paddy Slattery.

One of the few international film festivals that managed to complete its programme this year was Dublin, which climaxed a mere two weeks before the world went into lockdown. Among the many films that premiered at the fest was writer/director Paddy Slattery's feature debut Broken Law.

The film stars Tristan Heanue as a cop who finds himself torn between his allegiance to the badge and his criminal brother (Graham Earley). John Connors, Ryan Lincoln and Gemma-Leah Devereux also star.

Broken Law is expected to arrive in cinemas this Autumn.

Speaking on the upcoming release, Slattery commented "Over the last 10 years I would have told you that nothing, not even a global pandemic, could stop me from making this film and bringing it to cinemas. Well, I guess this is why they say you should never tempt fate. But bringing a film to the big screen has been a dream of mine for so many years, so it feels surreal knowing that this dream will become a reality very soon. Of course this pandemic has forced us to put our plans on ice for now, but it has also reminded us of how important the cinema going experience is, thereby making our journey from script to screen all the more meaningful. We’re extremely proud of our film and cannot wait to share it with audiences when cinemas finally re-open."

Check out the trailer, poster and official synopsis below.

BROKEN LAW tells the story of two estranged brothers on opposite sides of the law.  Dave Connolly is a respected member of the Garda Síochána but his loyalty to the force gets tested by his ex-convict brother Joe following a botched robbery.
