Olivia Colman Road-Trip Comedy ‘JOYRIDE’, Set For December 23 Release

By  | 

JOYRIDE follows 12-year-old Mully (Reid), who, after fleeing his father, steals a taxi and is shocked to find a woman, Joy (Colman), in the back seat with a baby. Joy has decided to give her child away to a friend, and Mully needs some distance from his debt-ridden dad, 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 in each other the friendship, love and learning they never knew they needed.

Directed by Emer Reynolds, JOYRIDE is written by Ailbhe Keogan, and produced by Tristan Orpen Lynch and Aoife O’Sullivan. Executive producers are Tim Haslam, Hugo Grumbar, Peter Touche, Christelle Conan, Dearbhla Regan, and Ailbhe Keogan.
