Black Pool is a gripping thriller of imprisonment and interrogation, as three desperate people engage in a battle of wills that may leave one of them dead. Set all in one night, the film uses a contemporary story of fatalism and vengeance to explore the conflict that has raged in Northern Ireland for nearly a hundred years.
Michael is a tortured Irishman living with his wife Emma in America. Perpetually down on his luck, he has projected his life’s misfortune onto a stranger and tonight, through a chance encounter, he believes he’s found the man who ruined his life.
This Irish/American co-production stars Tom Walton, Amber Stonebraker and Todd Van Voris. The film was partially shot on location in Dublin and Belfast.
