A good movie

For some reasons, this movie always reminds me of 'Liam'. Indeed, they were both released around the same period, they both a add a boy around the same age on the poster and they were both dealing with the same theme (family struggling against poverty during the Depression).

View all Angela's Ashes reviews
Based on the best selling autobiography by Irish expat Frank McCourt, Angela's Ashes follows the experiences of young Frankie and his family as they try against all odds to escape the poverty endemic in the slums of pre-war Limerick. The film opens with the family in Brooklyn, but following the death of one of Frankie's siblings, they return home, only to find the situation there even worse. Prejudice against Frankie's Northern Irish father makes his search for employment in the Republic difficult despite his having fought for the IRA, and when he does find money, he spends the money on drink.

Of course, the biggest difference was the fact that 'Liam' was dealing with a family living in Liverpool while this movie was about a family living in Ireland but I still think that both movies were extremely similar. Eventually, 'Liam' barely got noticed while 'Angela's Ashes' managed to become a little bit more successfull, even though it was still considered a box-office flop. Personally, I did enjoy this movie a little bit more, even if it was still nothing really mind-blowing though. The greatest asset here was th” read more
