“It’s 1987 in Northern Ireland. Frances Noone is ten years old and terminally bored. When her cruel teacher McEvilly tells her to write a diary of her weekend to read out in class Frances panics. Her life is so boring. There is nothing to do but watch the street from her window. When she goes to stay with her granny she realises her new neighbour is McEvilly. Eek! But what McEvilly doesn’t know is that her own secret antics with the headmaster will become the contents of Frances’s diary to be read on Monday morning.”
The Boring Diary of Frances Noone was selected for the 2015 ‘RTÉ / Galway Film Centre Short Film Commission Scheme‘.
Scriptwriter Jacinta Owens worked with Script Editor Deirdre Roycroft to develop and refine her short film script.
The film is directed by Cara Holmes and produced by Edwina Forkin.
