Movie Info

Twenty-something Alan is down on his luck. Stood up at the altar and recently fired from his banking job, he finds himself working with his mother as a part-time tourist advisor at Dublin Airport. It's there he comes face to face with first love Alice, stuck on standby for a flight home to New York. Their summer romance ended eight years previously with Alan promising to return to the US one day. He never did, and they haven't spoken since. Seizing his chance, Alan convinces a reluctant Alice to stay one more night in Dublin. Over the course of an unforgettable evening, they may just realise that they are more compatible than ever. But time is running out on this brief encounter. When does an unexpected second chance, become the one you've always been looking for?

Love is nice, but comic foils have all the fun.

Standby brings a breath of fresh air to the rom-com genre and leaves on it a decisively Irish stamp. A must watch.

For all Pare's toothy charms and Gleeson's good-natured bumbling, a tangible chemistry between them feels absent. More's the pity.

A sweet little movie that will have you rooting for the leads and stay with you once they've moved on.

Ok, you can guess how it'll end - but getting there is a delight.
