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.

Unexpectedly genuine
11 December 2002 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

It is a touching movie about characters with cultural differences which are instrumental in the resolution of unspoken injustices. The scenery of Ireland is breathtaking and the pace of the film is soothing. Pierce Brosnan is to be commended for bringing out the nature of his people and how their sentiments merge with the beauty of his native land.
