Since its release in 2004, Adam & Paul, a funny, downbeat, bleak and beautiful comedy, has achieved cult status among its devoted fans. Featuring brilliant performances in the lead roles, the film follows two hapless Dublin drug buddies through a single day, which, like every other, is entirely devoted to the business of scrounging and robbing money for drugs. The difference today is that Adam and Paul, already at rock bottom, have finally run out of luck, credit and friends.
Think Laurel and Hardy on drugs and you’ll get a feel for the strange, unforgettable world of this unique film.
Dedicated to the memory of the late, great, terribly missed Tom Jordan Murphy (1968 – 2007), this film stands as a testament to his awesome talent.
