LATEST PICS: Irish premiere screening of the film “Dare to be Wild”
Dare To be Wild follows Mary Reynolds’ adventures from the green hills of Ireland, to the desert highlands of Ethiopia, to London’s Chelsea for the garden design competition of 2002. DARE TO BE WILD is the against-all-odds story of a modern-day heroine, whose quest is to show the world the power of wild nature as she reaches for her dreams – one garden, one vast desert, at a time.
The heart of this true romantic adventure is Mary Reynolds’ quest to win the gold medal at the 2002 Chelsea Flower Show with her ‘wild’ Celtic Sanctuary garden design, and the filmmaker’s goal of preserving and re-generating natural habitats worldwide.
Dare to Be Wild signals a call to action to bring wild nature back into that little space we ourselves control – our own gardens.
Writer & Director Vivienne de Courcy said: “Dare to be Wild asks us to take a leap of faith to support the wild by inviting nature into our own back yards – let’s throw a lifeline to the wilderness.”
Dare to Be Wild features a stellar cast lead by Emma Greenwell (Love and Friendship, and Pride and Prejudice and Vampires) as Mary Reynolds and Tom Hughes (The Game, About Time, Cemetery Junction) as Christy Collard. Also starring is Alex Macqueen (Youth, Four Lions, I Give it a Year, The Hide), Janie Dee (Me and Orson Welles, Little White lies), Christine Marzano (Seven Psychopaths, Byzantium, Paranoia), Alaa Safi (The Avengers, A Prophet, Traitor.)
