Steve (Emmet Kirwan) is unsure of what he wants out of life. It’s not that he doesn’t like living in Tallaght, he just doesn’t want to settle down and live his parents’ life just yet. Steve feels somewhat removed from his friends and family in the Springfield estate, and often observes the goings on around him with a sense of detached bemusement, but buries all this beneath his busy social schedule of club-hopping with his mates and partying in the Dublin mountains. Sarah (Charlene Gleeson) has always seen through Steve’s mad-lad routine, and knows he is smarter than he lets on. 

Director:  David Coffey.
Starring: Emmet Kirwan, Charlene Gleeson.
Broadcaster: RTE | Production Companies: Accomplice TV.
Writers: David Coffey, Emmet Kirwan.

Rebecca is by far the nicest girl he’s ever gone out with. Sadly everyone realises this except for him… Dan & Becs intercuts the video diaries of the two main characters as they discuss their tumultuous relationship, blossoming careers, and the many perils of living life on Dublin’s Southside. Capturing the zeitgeist of Celtic Tiger Ireland. Dan & Becs was nominated for a Irish Film and Television Academy Award in 2008.
