Never a big fan of soaps – especially Eastenders – I have nonetheless been looking forward to this one as it was largely shot down the road from me in Dunmore East, Co.Waterford.
Redwater tells the story of what happens when EastEnders’ stalwarts Kat and Alfie Moon visit the Kellys and Dolans in the fictional Irish village of Redwater in search of Kat’s long-lost son.
The ‘not a spin-off‘ from Eastenders six-part series stars two of the most likeable stars from the soap – Shane Richie (Alfie) and Jessie Wallace (Kat). According to Richie it’s “Broadchurch meets The Wicker Man“…time will tell and hopefully it will be better than the woeful trailer below.
Traders tells the story of Harry Fox (Killian Scott) who seems to have it all, the luxury apartment, the fancy car but when the company he works for goes bust it looks like he will lose everything. A solution is offered by Vernon Stynes (John Bradley) who has masterminded a diabolical, all-or-nothing scheme based in the Deep Web, called Trading. Two strangers empty their banks accounts, sell their assets, put their entire worth in cash into two green sports bags. They travel to a remote location and fight to the death. Winner buries the loser and walks away twice as rich. Vernon believes Trading is a no-brainer for anyone who wants to get rich quick. Can Harry resist the lure of such a high risk gamble? It’s dangerous, it’s illegal, but it could solve all his problems.
Shot in Co.Dublin.
Written and directed by Rachael Moriarty and Peter Murphy.
Definitely something different, but going by the trailer I’ll wait for the DVD.
