Pickups, the new film directed by Jamie Thraves, is about a man called Aidan (conveniently enough, played by Aidan Gillen) who is suffering from insomnia, back trouble and the breakdown of his marriage. Aidan finds solace in a number of strangers he picks up, although he's now concerned someone is stalking him. Work is getting on top of him too, he murdered a couple of people last week and he still has more people to kill.
Jamie Thraves and Aidan Gillen continue their cinematic pilgrimage with this self-reflexive puzzle about an actor’s life.Gráinne Humphreys, Festival Director
