About this movie

"Funny Touching & True" - Sunday World. "A Merrier variation on One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" - Irish Times. When life let her down, only love could lift her up. World-weary stand-up comedienne, Kate McLaughlin is in a dark place - she wants out. Her morbid prayers are answered in the form of a cancer diagnosis. To placate her family, she begrudgingly agrees to undergo chemotherapy. Armed with staggering levels of cynicism and a plethora of blackly comic jokes, Kate gets off to a bad start with four other women she encounters in the chemo ward; four women from all walks of Irish life, whose unsolicited friendships are perfectly designed to blow open her shut-down heart. Inspired by Anne Gildea's best-selling memoir I've Got Cancer, What's Your Excuse? The Bright Side is a fresh new dramedy about the healing power of love, friendship and the importance of just having a laugh! The Bright Side is directed by Ruth Meehan, written by Jean Pasley and Ruth Meehan. It stars Gemma-Leah Devereux, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, Siobhan Cullen, Derbhle Crotty, Barbara Brennan, Karen Egan and Kevin McGahern. It is produced by Tony Deegan with backing from Screen Ireland, RTE and BAI.
