Movie Info

Lenny Abrahamson and Mark O'Halloran, the team behind the award-winning 2004 comedy drama Adam and Paul, reunite for this riff on Irish stereotypes concerning a dim-witted gas-station attendant named Josie (Pat Shortt) whose search for love and acceptance comes only a close second to his quest to find the optimum place to display his motor oil. In his own way Josie has found happiness in his quiet, rural existence, yet a growing hunger for intimacy will soon change his lonely life in ways he could never have imagined.

Strained humor gives way to maudlin melodrama in dull Irish pic Garage.

Despite the lofty ambition, serene camerawork and directorial intent, Garage suffers from second album syndrome.

A wonderfully knowing portrait of the fading small-town lifestyle in the Emerald Isle, Garage doesn't quite make the "must-see" list because of its ending

The film is a study of how a seemingly insignificant and benign mistake can unravel into a tragedy, given the right circumstances

Audience Reviews for Garage

Sooooo slow. Not a bad movie exactly, but deals with life in a small Irish town, and my goodness, it makes sure you feel their boredom. The cast are all very ordinary and convincing, and it all feels very real. It is worth a watch, but I couldn't really recommend anyone rush out and rent it.

Slow, mesmerizing and poignant tale of the fragility of village life with an assured performance from Shortt.
