Irish supernatural comedy EXTRA ORDINARY stars comedian/writer/actress Maeve Higgins (Naked Camera, Inside Amy Schumer), Barry Ward (Jimmy’s Hall, MAZE), Will Forte (Nebraska, Run & Jump), and Claudia O’Doherty (Trainwreck, Love, Inside Amy Schumer).
The film is the debut feature from writer/directors Mike Ahern and Enda Loughman and starring a strong Irish supporting cast including Jamie Beamish (Derry Girls, Hanna), Risteard Cooper (Apres Match), Mary McEvoy (Glenroe), Alison Spittle (Nowhere Fast), Siobhan McSweeney (Derry Girls) and Terri Chambers.
EXTRA ORDINARY introduces us to Rose, a sweet, lonely driving instructor in rural Ireland, who is gifted with supernatural abilities. Rose has a love/hate relationship with her ‘talents’ & tries to ignore the constant spirit related requests from locals – to exorcise possessed rubbish bins or haunted gravel. But! Christian Winter, a washed up, one-hit-wonder rock star, has made a pact with the devil for a return to greatness! He puts a spell on a local teenager- making her levitate. Her terrified father, Martin Martin, asks Rose to help save his daughter. Rose has to overcome the fear of her supernatural gift & work with Martin to save the girl, get the guy and be home in time for a light snack…maybe a yogurt or something…
EXTRA ORDINARY has been met with widespread acclaim since premiering at South by Southwest in Texas in March.
Filmed last year in Kildare, Tullamore and Wicklow, EXTRA ORDINARY is hilariously horrifying. Frighteningly funny. Unlike any Irish film you have ever seen… or will see again!
EXTRA ORDINARY is out in cinemas in Ireland on Friday, September 13.
