Storyline

Twenty years ago, Tony Egan's sister went to America. Nobody ever heard of her again. But now, the message of her death arrives in her town of birth. Only days later, her only son Chad arrives, too. Obviously, his mother took an African-American husband. Soon, Chad falls for Aislin, who has a bit of a crush on him too. But there is an old conflict going on between her father and Chad's uncle. This conflict resurfaces and begins to draw circles, wider and wider. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Trivia

When Rachel tries on her boots at the bar two older men ogle her legs while she slides them on. Peter exclaims that she'd give the two lads a heart attack. Rachel replies "Well at least they'll die smiling" before lifting up a slither of her skirt to show more leg. Jimmy Keogh who portrays one of the old Cronies, portrayed the title character in the film "Waking Ned Devine" who actually did die smiling from the shock of having a winning lottery ticket.

surprise
19 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was a nice surprise. I stumbled across it quite by accident while channel surfing on day. It deals with a wide range of human issues (love, cultural taboos, race, generation gap) in a very matter of fact fashion and worked toward resolution of the primary conflicts in believable strides. I feel it reflects well upon the Irish culture and the performers taking part. I enjoyed it well enough to desire to add it to my collection of DVD's. I would put it on a par with The Van, An Everlasting Piece, Rat, and The Snapper (to name a few). It isn't deserving of academy award consideration but certainly worth the time to view it.
