When Danny arrives at the Whitey crime scene, the police let him under the police tape, into the crime scene and allow him to physically touch the body. In reality this would never ever be allowed since it would compromise the crime scene in every way imaginable. See more »

Quotes

Kathy Quinn: It's your fucking fault. It's your fucking fault I'm here. It's your fucking fault and I hate you, I fucking hate you, all of my fucking life. I want you to remember. I want you to remember right now what I look like. And I want you to know - no, don't touch me! No one can come here.

The story of one family in South Boston and their fight for a better life..
27 October 1998 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

I saw SOUTHIE at the Montreal World Film Festival. I was impressed really, there is no other way to describe it. This film is poignant and true to life. The characters are believable and evoke strong feelings. Rose McGowan's portrayal of a young woman struggling with alcoholism was REAL, Donnie Wahlberg's character Danny Quinn battling to do the right thing, when it's the hardest thing to do was REAL! Wow, you leave the theater with your heart in your hand.
