With a violent, alcoholic father and a manic depressive, suicidal mother the pressure on Francie to grow up are immense. This isn't anything like the movie 'about a boy'; however!

Not one for the family.

An adaptation of perhaps one of the greatest pieces of English-language literature by James Joyce; a love letter to the land of his ancestors and the country where his children grew up. The film is set at Christmas dinner in the house of two spinster musician sisters and their niece in turn-of-the-century Ireland, attended by friends and family. The all-Irish cast and careful period detail give the piece richness and gravity.

Irish history is usually depressing because it's full of the absolute misery we experienced throughout the majority of our existence. It's important for this history to be remembered so that it'll never ever happen again.
