Irish Eye on Hollywood:
A Bet on the Right Horse

Another gritty New York story which has begun filming puts a modern twist on the Irish immigrant experience. Entitled Misty Button, this dark comedy was written and directed by Kerry-born Seanie Sugrue, with fellow Kerry native Bertie Brosnan producing. The film follows two Bronx Irish immigrants who make a big mistake: when asked to place a lucrative bet on the horse that gives the film its title, they instead keep the money, only to watch the horse actually win. Filming in the Bronx should wrap in August, Bertie Brosnan told the Irish Film & Television Network, adding: “We have a diverse cast and crew already in place featuring an eclectic mix of Irish and American actors. We believe the film will be enjoyed on both sides of the pond as it takes on much of the untold stories of the Irish immigrants interacting with the local New Yorkers, funnily and uniquely.” ♦
