Songs for Amy
…. the Irish (and all their global cousins) love a good story and SONGS FOR AMY has several of them. Wait until you see the one scene about the Dublin taxi driver (Dublin actor Rory Mullen) in Limerick! – HollywoodStar.com
1916 Seachtar na Casca
Rory Mullen pulls off an impressive performance as the veteran Tomas Clarke. – puesoccurrences.com
Most Memorable Moment: In the GPO towards the end of the Rebels time there. As Pearse prepares to evacuate, Clarke is left simply staring at the ruins of the building and you get a sense, from the portrayal by Mullen, of a man’s dreams crashing down around him. – Neverfeltbetter.com
Portrait of a Zombie
Another exceptional performance is that given by Rory Mullen. Playing the father and husband, he is a strong central character. The devotion and love he shows for his family and wife is very sweet – Corey Danna, horrornews.ie
The acting performances are of a remarkably high standard. Most notably of all are Geraldine McAlinden and Rory Mullen, who play the blighted son’s long suffering parents. McAlinden is the typical Irish Mammy; she will do literally anything if she deems it to be in her son’s best interest. Her character manages to be lovably sympathetic and bat-shit crazy at the same time. Mullen is her somewhat more grounded foil; a tormented soul, playing along to his wife’s delusions in the hope of preserving what little is left of her sanity. What makes their performances so powerful is their realism, despite the fantastical situation they are in. Most anyone who ever grew up under an Irish roof will recognise this. – Carmel Whelan Krank.ie
His harried but supremely loving parents (perfectly pitched performances by Geraldine McAlinden and Rory Mullen) talk with touching sincerity about their son’s plight. – CineQuest 2012 Top Picks
Billy’s parents(Geraldine McAlinden and Rory Mullen) are the real heart and soul of the film as they sit on the couch for interviews recounting how they met, how proud they are of Billy and if only people knew him like they do (cut to shots of Billy writhing in bed, gnashing his teeth and screaming). –Quiet Earth
