Parked on DVD in March

9 February 2012

Fred has fallen on hard times and finds himself living in his car with little hope of improving his situation. That all changes when he forms an unlikely friendship with Cathal, a dope-smoking 21-year-old with a positive attitude, and his new 'neighbour' in the Dublin car park they call home.

Cathal is determined to help Fred sort his life out. He modifies his car, helps him sign on the dole and make a friend in Jules, an attractive music teacher. But as Fred struggles with his pride to tell Jules about his 'home', and Cathal's drug habit spirals out of control, their friendships are tested as their lives change forever.

Starring Colm Meaney (The Snapper, The Van, and Chief O'Brien in Star Trek: The Next Generation) as Fred and Colin Morgan (Merlin) as Cathal, and directed by Darragh Byrne, Parked was described by Total Film thus: "Packing two terrific performances and a quirky independent spirit, Byrne's bittersweet coming-of-middle-age comedy is an unexpected treat."

Parked will be released on UK DVD on 12th March 2012 by Element Pictures Distribution at an as-yet unconfirmed retail price.

Extra features will include:

  • Making of Parked;
  • Director and Cast Interviews;
  • Trailers.
