Welcome to the Disco Pigs WikiEdit
Disco Pigs is an Irish film directed by Kirsten Sheridan and adapted from a play of the same name. Cillian Murphy and Elaine Cassidy star as Cork teenagers who have a lifelong, but unhealthy friendship that is imploding as they approach their seventeenth birthdays. They battle between what is best and what is right; to remain the same, or to let go of their extrordinary love.
Pig and Runt - born on the same day, in the same hospital, moments apart. Twins, all but by blood. Inseparable from birth, they are almost telepathic. They are also partners in crime, with an appetite for recklessness, exploration and destruction. But days before their 17th birthday the perfect balance of their world begins to shift. Pig's sexual awakening and increasing jealousy begins to threaten the private universe they have spent their lives constructing. When Runt must leave for boarding school, Pig's unpredictable nature spirals out of control in a trail of violence. The invisible thread between them is stretched to breaking point, the inseparable are about to separate, and which one will survive depends on which one can break free.
