Based on the novel by John McGahern and set in Ireland in the 1950s, the series tells the story of Moran and his children. Especially the girls find it difficult to get away from the influence of their despotic father and start living their own lives.
It's an externally good film I would recommend it to anyone who likes films about Ireland in the old days. It is similar to Falling for a Dancer. Rose is a mother figure to Moran's children likewise with Elizabeth in Falling for a Dancer. I got it on DVD. But Moran is different to Nellie he's got a temper but does not physically abuse Rose he's got mood swings alright but not never physically harm Rose. Where as Nellie raped Elizabeth and called her name. But still I wouldn't be encouraging anybody to have a temper. I wouldn't approve of Mark as a son in law he likes the drink too much I like it myself but I wouldn't be married to it now like Mark was. Maggie deserved better. Moran might have been contrary and stubborn but would never let anyone make a fool out of his daughters. Life in this country years ago was fairly hard from what I've seen in other Irish films the likes of Angela's Ashes, The Magdalene Sisters,Song for a Raggy Boy, My left foot, The Butcher Boy and many others.
