Stella Days comes back to The Source

After a very successful sell out night on its debut at The Source Arts Centre, Stella Days is back for a second run.


It all started in 2003 when Martin Sheen was back in Borrisokane celebrating the 100th anniversary of his mother Mary-Anne Fieland’s birth with his entire clan. It wasn’t unusual for the star to be handed scripts or storylines but he became intrigued when a local chap handed him a memoir, chronicling the fortunes of a local parish priest and major film buff Father Daniel Barry who was instrumental in opening the first cinema inNorth Tipperaryduring the 1950s.


As you would expect from his background and his reputation, Martin Sheen was perfect casting in this role. The film features a strong cast with plenty of locals as extras, and has stirred huge interest both at home and abroad. Stella Days is a gem of a film set against the backdrop of a changingIrelandcaught up in the growing conflict between church and state. Sterling performances all round. Take time out and a second chance to catch the movie that had everyone inTipperarytalking during filming last year!
