Dublin toilet humor on show at U.S. film festivals (IrishCentral)

17 November 2009 2:02 AM, PST | IrishCentral | See recent IrishCentral news »

Not every boat was lifted by the Celtic Tiger economy. In "W.C.," the low key, but thoroughly likeable new Irish film by writer and director Liam O Mochain, it’s the people who work unseen and underpaid who are his subjects.
