The Beauty Queen of Leenane

The Beauty Queen of Leenane

The darkly comic and unsettling Irish tale by Academy Award-Winner Martin McDonagh

In a small house on a big hill in County Galway, Ireland, the Folan women live out an uneasy truce. Maureen and her elderly but iron-willed mother Mag spend their days in endless rounds of petty insults and physical threats as each maneuvers for control of their isolated existence. But when an old family friend reappears and offers Maureen a chance at love and a new life, this once-benign terrain grows treacherous and the two women, bound by blood but driven by desperation, will do anything to survive.

RATED PG-13: Contains strong language, sexual references and explicit scenes of violence and abuse
