Eat the Peach is a compelling story of two ordinary men who set out to do something extraordinary.
— The New York Times
Frustrated by life in a small Irish border town, Vinnie and Arthur see Roustabout, a movie where Elvis Presley rides a fairground Wall of Death. To the amusement of the local community, the two men proceed to build their very own Wall of Death on the outskirts of town. As their enthusiasm increases, their cash decreases and it becomes necessary for the pair to hire themselves out to the local smuggling baron.
Eat the Peach is a film about losers who are authentic heroes, and the search for a sense of freedom.
Presented to coincide with the World Premiere of The Artist and the Wall of Death on Saturday 09 July at 18:30.
