The Ordinaries


€8 / €6 (conc.)


Have you ever felt like a supporting character in your own life? Sophie Linnenbaum’s daring and original film imagines what it would be like if you really were one. It tells of Paula – a supporting character in a movie – who dreams of having her own storyline by attending Main Character School and becoming a lead. 

A clever satire about identity and exclusion, The Ordinaries sees a woman battling these themes playfully in a filmic meta world.

The Ordinaries is part of the Dublin International Film Festival Tour which brings one selected film to venues outside Dublin during the Festival, in association with access>Cinema, and with the support of the Arts Council.

Sligo Film Society is once again delighted to be a tour venue giving our audience an opportunity to have the festival experience and view an exceptional world cinema title.
