Irish Comedy 'Goldfish Memory'
to Screen at UW-Eau Claire

RELEASED: Feb. 9, 2005

EAU CLAIRE — "Goldfish Memory" (Ireland 2003) will screen Feb. 17-20 at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Director Elizabeth Gill's lighthearted ensemble comedy about the dangers and delights of dating in contemporary Dublin will be presented at 6 and 8:30 p.m. Thursday through Sunday in Davies Theatre.

A college professor woos his fresh-faced young female students with a tale of how goldfish have a memory of three seconds, making every experience seem as fresh and exciting as though it were for the first time. This launches the first of many stories, where characters of all stripes (straight, gay and in between) fall in and out of love with each other, leaping from relationship to relationship, getting their hearts broken, then falling in love again and starting all over.

Tom (Sean Campion), the 40-ish professor, finds himself shocked to get dumped by one of his own girl-toys before he dumps her. Then to add insult to his disgrace, he actually falls in love for the first time with a woman closer to his own age. Angie (Flora Montgomery) is a cute TV newscaster, who has an affair with Clara (Fiona O'Shaughnessy), who dumps Angie and takes up with Isolde, one of Tom's exes (Fiona Glascott). In the meantime, Red (Keith McErleane), a bike messenger, falls for the seemingly straight David (Peter Gaynor) and accidentally gets his best female friend (one of the above) pregnant.

The 85-minute film is not rated.

Admission is $2 for International Film Society members and UW-Eau Claire faculty and staff and $1 for UW-Eau Claire students. Tickets are available at the University Service Center in Davies Center's east lobby, (715) 836-3727.

The film is sponsored by the UW-Eau Claire International Film Society.
