The Bass Player

“Masterfully Told.” – The Irish Times “Outstanding film.” – Sunday World “Heartwarming.” – The Sun.  Nominated for an Irish Film and Television Academy Award. In this eloquent, witty homage to his father, filmmaker Niall McKay wrestles with his family’s unsettling past to overcome his fear of commitment. As Niall helps his elderly father Jim, a jazz bass player, return home to Ireland, father and son revisit Niall’s tumultuous childhood with an abusive, unpredictable mother and a musician father who was often on the road. Striking many poignant chords, the filmmaker’s evolving notions of family and commitment will charm and amuse. — Carrie Lozano – Mill Valley Film Festival
