IF YOU want a powerful irish drama

in the name of the father

Vincent Georgie: Irish Writer-Director Jim Sheridan reteams with his MY LEFT FOOT leading man Daniel Day-Lewis for this outstanding, energizing and moving true story of justice gone awry. The film will make you cheer. Emma Thompson and the great Irish character actor Pete Postlethwaite (who Spielberg described as “the best actor in the world”) are terrific in supporting roles. 

Synopsis: Unemployed young Irishman Gerry Conlon (Daniel Day-Lewis) gets by as a petty thief in 1970s Belfast. When local IRA leaders get fed up with him, he flees to England and meets up with his friend Paul Hill (John Lynch). On the same night that the IRA bombs a nearby pub, the friends get kicked out of their communal digs and are forced to sleep in a park. He returns to Belfast, but is arrested as the prime suspect in the bombing and imprisoned, where he spends 15 years trying to clear his name.

if you want a great Irish romance


Come for the very appealing lead performances, stay for the heart-tugging and memorable ballads. This beloved gem of a film spawned a Broadway musical of the same name. The film is small, genuine and makes you smile. 

Synopsis: A vacuum repairman (Glen Hansard) moonlights as a street musician and hopes for his big break. One day a Czech immigrant (Marketa Irglova), who earns a living selling flowers, approaches him with the news that she is also an aspiring singer-songwriter. The pair decide to collaborate, and the songs that they compose reflect the story of their blossoming love.
