Self doubt and the poignant shadow of her own experience of being neglected as a child hang over Joy (Olivia Colman, The Crown, The Lost Daughter) as she begins to spiral, culminating in an overwhelming need to escape.

Her life soon takes an unexpected turn, forming an unlikely pairing when she is thrust into the life of loud-mouthed twelve year old street urchin Mully (impressive newcomer Charlie Reid), who also suffers from a tumultuous, troubled parental relationship. A taxi runaway begins a transformative journey for these two lost souls.

A burgenoning bond with incredible emotional heft powers this spirited story of connection between seemingly very disparate people, whilst grappling with the often difficulty realities of familial bonds and parental responsibility. Joyride is a heartfelt Irish-set comedy-drama from acclaimed director Emer Reynolds, spearheaded by a wondrous lead performance by the incomprable Olivia Colman.
