"Buddy Boy," Mark Hanlon's debut, is a haunting and potent film about dead end lives that provokes more questions than answers but remains bizarrely interesting throughout.

The film provides a look into the surrealistic existence of emotionally stunted, stuttering misfit Francis (Aidan Gillen,) who lives with his trollish invalid stepmother (actual amputee Susan Tyrell) in a squ... read more

Stuff About Me (27 movies items)

"I have a speech... thing. It's not as significant as a lisp or a stutter, but I can't pronounce my 'R's very well, so I say my name, Sarah, like 'Sawa.' I also pronouce 'problem' like 'prollum.' I have gone to speech therapy for this, but to no avail."
