The 25th Galway Film Fleadh is to open with Spanish dramedy Tasting Menu, directed by Roger Gual, and close with John Banville adaptation The Sea, directed by Stephen Brown.

Ciaran Hinds, Charlotte Rampling, Natascha McElhone, Rufus Sewell, Bonnie Wright and Sinead Cusack star in Independent-produced The Sea, about a man dealing with the loss of his wife.

Tasting Menu, which stars Fionnula Flanagan, Stephen Rea, Claudia Bassols, Jan Cornet, Rodrigo Cortés and Togo Igawa, follows a couple whose romantic evening at the world’s best restaurant takes an unusual turn.

Producers on the latter are Zentropa and Subotica.

The 25th Galway Film Fleadh runs from July 9-14.
