“4 stars….Gleeson is as we’ve never seen him before; explicit and intriguing, as he grows on screen from meek, introverted, sexually repressed loner to a confident, promiscuous pimp. His deadpan performance, alongside Gordon’s stellar Kim, lends perfectly to the comedy in writer/director Hall’s great script. As his IFTA win earlier this year indicated, Gleeson is one to watch”

“Showcasing Domhnall Gleeson as a leading man for the first time, this overtly quirky tale has some very funny moments and is overall an engaging and fun watch.”

“Sensation is a great Irish film, a well-acted, well-written and for all it’s darkness, at times surprisingly sweet comedy drama.”

“Gleeson is terrific as the shy, awkward lad who blossoms into a ruthless exploiter of women, and he gets very strong support from Gordon. In what has been a very fine year for Irish film, Sensation is one of the bravest and hardest hitting offerings of the year.”
