Emer Reynolds Talks About The Cast In Joyride | Exclusive

Emer Reynolds directs the warm, joy-filled Irish film Joyride. Starring Olivia Colman, Lochlann O’Mearáin and new actor Charlie Reid.

The Synopsis 

Fleeing from his father, Irish 12-year-old Mully (Charlie Reid) steals a taxi and is shocked to find a woman, Joy (Olivia Colman, “The Favourite”), in the back seat with a baby. Joy has decided to give her child away to a friend, and Mully needs to get some distance from his debt-ridden dad (Lochlann O’Mearáin, “Outlander”), who’s after the cash Mully has with him. And so two lovable rogues, a complicated middle aged mother and a troubled adolescent, go on a journey across Ireland, gradually finding the friendship, love and learning they never knew they needed in each other.

I had the opportunity to speak to Emer Reynolds during the press day of Joyride. She spoke about the landscape in the film that she hopes is seen as another character. As well as finding Charlie Reid to play “Mully” and his performance that brings out the mother in Olivia Colmans character.

Magnolia Pictures will release JOYRIDE in theaters and on demand December 23, 2022
