Rosie is a mother to four kids and partner to John Paul. They are a family without a home. Set over 36 intense hours, Rosie is the story of a woman trying to protect her loved ones and maintain their dignity in a deepening crisis. Within the constant struggles of finding a temporary roof to put over their heads while they try to find somewhere more permanent, the film examines how even in times of crises; the love and strength of a family can endure.

Rosie won the Dublin Film Critics Circle Award and Best Feature Film Award at Irish Film Festival London in 2018.

A gripping portrait of a mother who is mangled by circumstances and deserves a medal for patience.’ International Film Festival Rotterdam.

“Draws considerable power from a pervasive ignorance on just how thin the barrier is between housing security and absolute free fall.’ Dominic Griffin, Spectrum Culture.

‘Director Paddy Breathnach shows Rosie coping, multi-tasking, melting down, loving, forging ahead. She is beautiful in every way. Her story is too.’ Martha K. Baker, KDHX St. Louis.
