Hollywood star Michael Fassbender has been awarded his hometown’s highest honour.
The Irishman was inducted into the Order of Innisfallen – bestowed by Killarney in Co Kerry – in recognition of his remarkable achievements in the film industry.
The 39-year-old actor was joined at the ceremony in Muckross House in the stunning Killarney National Park by his Oscar-winning partner Alicia Vikander.
Fassbender, who was Oscar nominated for his role as Steve Jobs in last year’s Danny Boyle’s biopic of the Apple co-founder, was also joined by his parents Josef and Adele, who still live just outside Killarney.
Celebrations continued at a gala black tie ball in the five-star Europe Hotel and Resort after the ceremony.
Previous recipients of the Order of Innisfallen award include singer Daniel O’Donnell.
The honour is named after Innisfallen Island, arguably Killarney’s best known and most historic heritage site.
The November 2016 issue of Total Film magazine has a behind-the-scenes feature on Assassin’s Creed and a short interview with The Light Between Oceans director, Derek Cianfrance. I have added scans into the gallery.
Check out the first official trailer, production still, and poster for the dramatic thriller, Trespass Against Us.
TRESPASS AGAINST US is set across three generations of the Cutler family who live as outlaws in their own anarchic corner of Britain’s richest countryside. Chad Cutler (Michael Fassbender) is heir apparent to his bruising criminal father, Colby (Brendan Gleeson) and has been groomed to spend his life hunting, thieving and tormenting the police. But with his own son, Tyson (Georgie Smith) coming of age, Chad soon finds himself locked in a battle with his father for the future of his young family. When Colby learns of Chad’s dreams for another life he sets out to tie his son and grandson into the archaic order that has bound the Cutler family for generations. He engineers a spectacular piece of criminal business involving a heist, a high-speed car chase and a manhunt, which leaves Chad bruised and bloodied and with his very freedom at stake. With the law cracking down and his father tightening his grip, Chad is forced into increasingly desperate measures. Featuring incredible performances – and an astonishing score by The Chemical Brothers – TRESPASS AGAINST US is at once an exhilarating crime thriller and a profoundly moving story about love and family.
