“In 1973 Stanley Kubrick came to Ireland…and brought the whole goddamn British Army with him”
Kubrick By Candlelight is an award winning romantic comedy set behind the scenes of the filming of the Stanley Kubrick motion picture Barry Lyndon which shot in Southern Ireland in 1973. Many myths and legends surround Kubrick and none more so than his dramatic escape from Ireland after receiving a threatening phone call in early 1974…. Our story finds two young lovers, one an Irish kid playing a British Redcoat, one an English assistant director, from different sides of the camera tracks. Will their love survive the shoot? Can the production’s insatiable desire for candles be satisfied by the local village? And just who made that threatening call to Stanley which sent him running?
