Part of our minimalist movie poster series is our Cardboard Gangsters print. Cardboard Gangsters follows the story of a group of young lads in Darndale, led by Jay Connolly (John Connors), who sell drugs to make a living. They set out in a bid to gain more money and power and enter the big leagues of the drug trade. Things begin to unravel quickly as not everyone in Darndale is willing to let these Cardboard Gangsters achieve the notoriety they crave without a fight.
Cardboard Gangsters is a 2017 Irish crime film based in Darndale, Coolock, Dublin. It was funded by Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.
The film centers around a 24 year old, Jay Connelly, as he and his friends attempt to take control of the Darndale drug trade. The group rivals with Derra, Jay’s father’s former best friend, and the man who has controlled the Darndale drug trade for the last 30 years. The rivalry between the gangs grows until Jay murders Derra’s son. Derra’s wife Kim, who Jay slept with, lures Jay back to Darndale where Derra’s gang kidnap, torture and murder him. The film ends on Jay looking up at the flight to Spain he almost boarded, and a flashback to his childhood, highlighting his regret.
John Connors was born in 1990 in Kings Cross, London, United Kingdom to an Irish traveller family, but moved to Ireland with his family when he was 11 months old. His father suffered from depression and schizophrenia, and took his own life when Connors was eight years old. John took up acting when he was 20 years old after being persuaded by his younger brother Joseph in a bid to help him with his own battle with depression. John began boxing at a young age because he was experiencing bullying. He is a former three-time Irish boxing champion and a four nations boxing gold medalist.
