Death of a Ladies' Man

Inspired by the work of Leonard Cohen, and set to some of his most beloved music, Death Of A Ladies' Man tells the story of a carousing college professor whose life takes a series of unimaginable turns.

Samuel O’Shea (Gabriel Byrne), an exuberant womaniser and enthusiastic drinker has seen better days. His second marriage is ending, and his first wife and two grown children have turned against him. More problematic, he has begun seeing things: Frankenstein sidles to the bar; strangers sing and dance to Leonard Cohen tunes; and his late father Ben O’Shea (Brian Gleeson) pops up for chats. Looking for answers and reflecting on the life he has lived, Samuel retreats to his family shack in remote Ireland, where he begins work on that great novel he always meant to write, and generally take stock. Unexpectedly, he meets and falls in love with Charlotte (Jessica Paré), a woman who is full of surprises leading Samuel to an utterly unforeseeable, but surprisingly happy ending.

From the producers of Brooklyn and Once and featuring one of Byrne’s best performances in years as the charming playboy, this is a touching, melodic dramedy about love and life.
