Adam & Paul

Lenny Abrahamson’s astounding debut, now ten years old, is a film that marked the birth of the New Irish Cinema.

Friends since they were small boys, Adam and Paul have withered into two hapless desperate junkies, tied together by habit and necessity. The course of a day, which is like every other, is entirely devoted to the business of scrounging and robbing money for drugs.


Showing as part of the Film Firsts Season, in partnership with Northumbria University.
