Quotes

Charlie: [to his father's ghost] You worked for 58 years, 9 hours a day, in a garden so steep a horse couldn't climb it. And when they let you go, with a pension of 10 shillings a week, you did handsprings of joy because it came from "The Quality." You spent your life sitting on brambles, and wouldn't move in case someone took your seat.

I want this film on DVD - cause I'm wearing out my tape.
21 November 2001 | by (Long Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

This great little slice of life film is well-worth giving your time to viewing. The music score by Elmer Bernstein reminds me of "To Kill a Mockingbird" with an Irish accent. I laughed and cried - sometimes both at the same time. The acting is superb and Martin Sheen shows himself to be the great actor most of his film roles have never given him the prove.
