Movie of the night. Obviously this isn’t the cover of the DVD I have; it was released in the states under the title “Summer Fling,” because foreign films are required by US law to have crap titles.
Seriously, though: Catherine O’Hara, Gabriel Byrne, and Colm Meaney should be in all Irish films ever. Plus, this was my introduction to Jason Barry. He’s so chubby and mulleted in this, but I still adore him. Amusingly, he was 24 when this was made in 1996, and played a 17-year-old. In 2005, he was 33, and played a character in Mirrormask who is romantically linked to a girl who can’t be more than 16. He doesn’t look any older in Mirrormask, just thinner. And y’know, less mullet-y.
Jared Leto, of course, looks exactly the same in this as he does now, and will until the end of time, as he sold his soul to the devil years ago.
