Quirky, fun & different
30 August 2000 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This film is VERY impressive for an Irish film. Take the time after you've seen it, and you'll realize that it makes many social comments; many of them valid. On the whole, very worthwhile. Sit down before you take your own leaving or A Levels and you'll feel very good after. Go rent now!
