Written by Paul Laverty (Looking for Eric, The Wind That Shakes the Barley), and starring Barry Ward, Simone Kirby, Jim Norton, Brían F O'Byrne and Andrew Scott, Jimmy's Hall is "freely inspired" by the real-life story of Irish communist Jimmy Gralton (Ward). In 1921 Jimmy Gralton's sin was to build a dance hall on a rural crossroads in Ireland where young people could come to learn, to argue, to dream... but above all to dance and have fun. Jimmy's Hall celebrates the spirit of these free thinkers. The film is set in 1932 and follows events when Jimmy returned from a decade in New York and re-opened the hall. The film is freely inspired by Jimmy's life and turbulent times.
