Based on the memoir by Amy Liptrot, the film debuted earlier this year.

The Outrun will make its theatrical debut on Friday, September 27 in the UK and Ireland, it has officially been confirmed.

The movie centres on Rona (Ronan), 29, who, after a ten-year absence, returns to her hometown of the Orkney Islands. “”sober but lonely, she tries to suppress her memory of the events which set her on this journey of recovery”. is how the movie describes Rona.

“Slowly the beauty and lore of the land enters her inner world and – one day at a time – Rona finds hope and strength in herself among the heavy gales and the bracingly cold sea,” the synopsis continues.

The film, which was directed by Nora Fingscheidt, stars Slow Horses’ Saskia Reeves and Game of Thrones’ Stephen Dillane in addition to Ronan and I May Destroy You’s Paapa Essiedu.

2015 saw the publication of the first memoir, which followed Liptrot while she recuperated at home in the Orkney Islands. It was the recipient of several honours, including the 2017 PEN Ackerley Prize and the 2016 Wainwright Prize.

Ronan has a busy 2024 ahead of him in addition to The Outrun. The actor is scheduled to appear in Steve McQueen’s Blitz, costarring with Stephen Graham of Peaky Blinders and Harris Dickinson of The Iron Claw.
