Out of the stifling, isolated Irish community she has grown up in comes a new breed of disillusionment finding its most frightening manifestations in the unpredictable behavior of a local gang. While the community is shaken by the death of a local boy, Candice finds escape in the nihilistic stranger who may be responsible for the crime.


Critic Reviews for Kissing Candice

All Critics (8)

The result is a film that's much more about mood than story.

March 1, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

With its fractured, elliptical narrative, Kissing Candice uses its form to perfectly illustrate its content.

For a film so assured, stylised and well-paced, [Aoife] McArdle has certainly made an impressive, and memorable, debut. Let's hope she has more stories to tell. Kissing Candice is not to be missed.

October 2, 2017 | Full Review…

If nothing else its sense of dread is palpable throughout, the lighting and score simultaneously beautiful and panic inducing. It's best when wholly experiential.

October 2, 2017 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

The story goes from dumb to dumber, and never has a grip on Candice's opaque if intensely physical presence, let alone her character.

September 29, 2017 | Full Review…

Freed from the constraints of shorter formats, McArdle rushes around her 102-minute runtime with all the curious abandon of a goldfish moved from a small bowl to a massive aquarium.
