Wildfire review – savagely powerful Irish border drama

This story of two sisters, torn apart by family tragedy but drawn together by a bond deeper than anything the local gossips can understand, is also a tale of blurred boundaries. The line between Lauren (Nora-Jane Noone) and her errant sister Kelly (the late Nika McGuigan) is increasingly permeable as they plunge back into their intense. sibling relationship. And then there’s the line that marks the Irish border, the backdrop to their family’s story and the source of its suffering. Savagely powerful, directed with an unshowy but acute eye (the use of the colour red is a simple but searingly effective device), this is a terrific feature debut from the writer and director Cathy Brady.
