Irvine Welsh’s film Nuts is a dark comedy. Underneath the obvious comic elements, there are bigger issues at play: the much overlooked men’s health issue of testicular cancer, and the closeted racism among Ireland’s middle-class professionals. Ireland is a country that has recently undergone dramatic changes, and the comfortable materialistic world that Dominic has built around himself is about to fall apart. This short film is novelist and screenwriter (Trainspotting) Irvine Welsh’s directorial debut. The film was produced by Emer Martin and Niall McKay.
