Life's a Breeze, the new Lance Daly (Kisses)-directed "recession comedy" which stars Pat Shortt and Fionnula Flanagan, is to receive its world premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh in July and will open in Irish cinemas in the same month.

The Galway Film Fleadh runs from July 9 to 14 and the film opens in Irish cinemas on July 19.

Life's a Breeze tells the story of a family's race against time to claim a lost fortune and also stars Eva Birthistle, Gerry McCann, Philip Judge, Lesley Conroy, Peter Coonan, Brian Gleeson, Paul Ronan and Kelly Thornton, with cameos by Ryan Tubridy and Joe Duffy.

Patrick O'Neill of the film's distributors, Wildcard Distribution, said: "Life's a Breeze is a fun, feel-good family comedy in the vein of Little Miss Sunshine and The Snapper, and it is going to be loved by audiences of all ages throughout Ireland, when it hits cinemas this July."

Gar O'Brien, Programmer of the Galway Film Fleadh, said: "The Galway Film Fleadh is delighted to present the world premiere of Life's a Breeze as part of our 25th programme.

"Lance Daly's latest is that rarest of things: a feel-good comedy that actually delivers on its promise.

"Featuring inspired performances from Fionnula Flanagan, Pat Shortt, Eva Birthistle and newcomer Kelly Thornton, Life's a Breeze proves that, though the country may be bollox'd [see poster below], there's still plenty to smile about in this life-affirming comedy."
