“Lost & Found” is the Irish movie of 2019!
Looking for a great Irish movie to head along to in the next few weeks as we impatiently wait to be able to stream the second season of Derry Girls? Having opened in North America in March 2019, “Lost & Found” has become a surprising Irish hit in the US, breaking the box office numbers made by famine movie “Black 47” and the H-block film “Maze.”
In fact, “Lost & Found” looks set to triple to numbers made by both movies despite being made on a minuscule budget of $75,000.
Already six weeks into its run, the movie is still going strong in New York and Boston and has just opened in Chicago and Washington D.C., with even more theaters planning to begin their screenings later this month.
Not only that, but it has also been made available on “Video On Demand,” bringing it to over 150 million homes on multiple platforms across cable, satellite, telecom and online.
Based on true stories, “Lost & Found” is a feature film with seven interconnecting stories set in and around a Lost and Found office of an Irish train station.
Not only did the movie's world premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh sell out instantly but it won Best Foreign Film at the 2018 Arizona International Film Festival and was a buzz title at the recent 25th Austin Film Festival last November 2018.
