David Gleeson's genial comedy-drama unfolds around Shane (Michael Legge), a shy young twentysomething who is just striking out on his own. He's frightfully unhappy in his dead-end job as a civil servant -- a feeling repeatedly driven home by his disillusioned, nearly retired coworker, Jerry (Frank Kelly). A talented illustrator, Shane is desperate to attend art school but lacks the necessary funds. After a humorous apartment hunt (who knew there were so many young people flocking to Limerick?) Shane finally finds a flat to share with a gay fashion design student, Vincent (Allen Leech). Before you can say "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," Vincent is pulling the bashful Shane out of his shell and sending him down the road to fabulous.

Of course, there are going to be bumps along the way as Shane, after taking his first shaky steps on the road to personal makeover, takes a disastrous turn into the world of drug running and falls for Vincent's best friend Gemma (the luminous Amy Shiels). Legge and Leech both deliver affable, bright-eyed performances and have a marvelous chemistry as the initially mismatched roomies. First-time director Gleeson draws on their gay boy/straight boy camaraderie to fashion a coming-of-age story that is refreshing, good-natured and witty. Along the way Gleeson also manages to paint a picture of contemporary Limerick as a bustling, cosmopolitan arts center. Move over Dublin!
