Today is Saint Patrick’s Day, a day to celebrate all things Irish, a day when real Irishmen and women hide in their homes while Amateur Irishmen take to the streets and the pubs. It’s a day when the city of Chicago – no lie – dyes the mouth of the Chicago River green… or even greener than usual. Given that this year Saint Paddy’s day occurs on a Sunday, I suspect that the celebration has been going on since at least Friday and may well last into next Thursday what with the whiskey and the beer and the general all around vomiting. Ah, glorious!
Since we’re celebrating things that are Irish, I’ll be mentioning some of me own favorite Irish films. You may have different ones and I’ll drink to those as well (it’s a day for it) but these are my particular favorites.

In this latest entry to my series of Director interviews, I question the wonderful Bristolian Kirk Jones- most people may know the work, but not the man behind them. Jones started off with Indie darling Waking Ned, then moved on to direct beloved family classic Nanny McPhee, and then remade the Italian drama Stanno Tutti Bene as Everybody’s Fine with the electric ensemble of Robert De Niro, Sam Rockwell, Drew Barrymore and Kate Beckinsale. Jones’ latest film was the box office smash What To Expect When You’re Expecting, once again helming a well-casted ship with the likes of Cameron Diaz, Chris Rock, Elizabeth Banks, Anna Kendrick and Dennis Quaid. Jones was courteous enough to give up his time and comment on his directing methods, his career so far, and his upcoming slate.
What inspired you to direct? Was it a desire you had from a young age? »
