Good Films You May Not Have Seen (96 movies items)

"One of those rare movies that's both tragic and funny, "The Butcher Boy" seemed unadaptable from the stream-of-conciousness Irish novel by Patrick McCabe. Young Eamonn Owens does a great job as the aggressively outgoing and eventually violently schizophrenic Francie Brady, and the film has a strong sense of time and place. Read the book. Similar To This- Spider, The Living & the Dead, The Young Poisoner's Handbook, Heavenly Creatures"
