In the same spare style as their first award-winning film, Adam & Paul, director Lenny Abrahamson and writer Mark O’Halloran bring us Garage, a startling and hypnotic tragi-comedy from the margins of contemporary Irish life. Regarded by his neighbours as a harmless misfit, eliciting idle kindness, benign tolerance and occasional abuse, Josie has spent all his adult life as the caretaker of a crumbling petrol station on the outskirts of a small town in the mid-west of Ireland. He is limited, lonely, yet relentlessly optimistic and, in his own peculiar way, happy.
