National Treasure and Irish acting legend Brendan Gleeson on Weekend Breakfast.

Alison has not hidden the fact that Brendan is one of her absolute heroes. She spoke to him about his brand-new documentary, ‘Brendan Gleeson's Farewell to Hughes’ and why he felt it was so important to record this period in his life and what trad music and a creative space is so important to humanity and Irish people in particular. He is a proud fiddle and mandolin player.

Brendan also revealed his thoughts on the current Irish acting renaissance, Paddington 2 "I nearly sliced the finger off meself!" , Harry Potter, Smurf Movie, Joker 2 (he was amazed by Jaoquin in first movie and signed by straight away to Folie A Deux once he knew Phoenix was attached) and loads more!

‘Brendan Gleeson's Farewell to Hughes's’ documentary will make its world premiere at the Dublin International Film Festival on Friday 1st March followed by a Q&A with Brendan Gleeson.

It will be released in the Lighthouse Cinema and Pálás Cinema Galway on March 2nd. For more see diff.ie.
