Ireland may not have much of a national cinema but in recent years we have produced enough quirky little comedy-dramas to merit more than just a passing footnote in the annals of world cinema. Tom Hall's "Sensation" is one of the quirkiest.
It's about sex, particularly the commercial kind. Donal is the perpetually horny young farmer who hooks up online with escort Courtney/Kim and then goes into business with her. It's an original idea and it's nicely done, (and it's surprisingly dark). As the big-hearted hooker Luanne Gordon is excellent while Domhnall Gleeson is outstanding as the randy, overly trusting farmer. Minor it may be but it's certainly worth a look.
