The Man in the Hat: the sweetest film of 2020

The Man in the Hat"This won't take too much of your time. And you don't need to be blown out of your seats; you can just be a human being and watch this little journey and feel things. It has its own heartbeat, unlike anything else," Ciarán says.

It will be released digitally on Monday, October 19.
