Everything we know about ‘Irish Wish’

Lindsay Lohan has carved a unique niche for herself in the realm of ‘life-swap’ films. From the iconic Freaky Friday to the heartwarming The Parent Trap and the lesser-adored Just My Luck, Lohan has built her career on the ‘what if’ genre of films. And the upcoming Netflix feature, Irish Wish, is the latest addition to this list.

Irish Wish marks Lohan’s second outing in a Netflix original after her charming performance in Falling for Christmas. The film is written by Kirsten Hansen and directed by Janeen Damian, who also directed Falling for Christmas.

Lohan and Netflix are all out with a vengeance to give the Mean Girls star a rom-com resurrection to go along with the media’s redemption arc, as they spent most of the last decade dragging the former child actor through the gossip rag mud. They promise to bring along some early noughties rom-com charm in this outing.

If you have been eagerly waiting to watch the upcoming flick on Netflix, here’s everything you need to know about Irish Wish.

What is Irish Wish about?

Irish Wish follows the story of Maddie, a book editor portrayed by Lindsay Lohan, who finds herself in a complex predicament when the love of her life becomes engaged to her best friend. Maddie decides to put her feelings aside and agrees to be a bridesmaid at the wedding.

Set in stunning Ireland, Maddie makes a spontaneous wish for true love, only to wake up as the bride-to-be herself. As the story unfolds, Maddie sets on a journey of self-discovery, realising that her true soulmate might be someone entirely unexpected.

Speaking of her experience shooting in Ireland, Lohan told Tudum, “Ireland’s so beautiful. I’d never been, [but] my grandfather’s from there. We stayed in this little town called Dalkey. The people are so nice, and the Guinness pies were amazing.”

Who is in the cast of Irish Wish?

Irish Wish boasts an ensemble cast led by Lohan as Madeline ‘Maddie’ Kelly. Lohan’s brother, Dakota Lohan, will also feature in the film.

Joining the Lohans are Ed Speleers as James Thomas, Alexander Vlahos as Paul Kennedy, Ayesha Curry as Maddie’s best friend Heather, Elizabeth Tan as Emma Taylor, and the legendary Jane Seymour as Rosemary Kelly.
