Contender for best Irish film ever made: Catherine Clinch and Carrie Crowley in An Cailín Ciúin

With lockdowns behind us (for the moment), and cinemas enjoying their first uninterrupted year’s business since 2019, there has been an encouraging rebound at the box office.

Jurassic World Dominion, a bad sequel, has chalked up close to a billion dollars at the box office, while Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, a shabby Marvel offshoot, has done even better. Leading the pack is Top Gun: Maverick, which has done astonishing business in the US and worldwide, with a gross of almost $1.2bn and counting.
