Storyline

In this tribute to James Joyce, Fionnula Flanagan gives a tour-de-force performance as a half-dozen or so women in Joyce's real and fictional worlds. When she portrays his wife Nora remembering their time together, Flanagan captures the era and the author in lyrical detail. As Sylvia Beach, the woman who first published Ulysses, new dimensions concerning the importance of Nora in Joyce's literary visions of women emerge, and when Flanagan interprets Joyce characters like Molly Bloom or a washerwoman from Finnegan's Wake, the beauty of Joyce's language shines through the melodious words.

Accessible James Joyce
26 June 2003 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful film. Fionnula knows her stuff and she can help you know it too. It's been several years since I saw it, but there are some scenes that come to mind so easily and vividly. If you find James Joyce a challenge, as I do, this film makes his work accessible. 10/10!
