Set in small town Ireland in 1981, 'Dannyboy' tells the story of a young man trying to find love among New Romantics, Post Punks, Goths and other tribes. The film centers around Daniel, an anxious, stuttering teen in his attempt to save his demented family in the midst of a compromising love triangle.
"Shot with the eager assistance of locals in Kildare, DannyBoy has an ingenuous charm that almost makes up for its pinballing plot. There is throughout a feeling of being swept along by a community endeavour." -- The Irish Times
