engaging, good story, terrific new actors, great photography
29 March 2001 | by (Nyack, NY) – See all my reviews

Sunburn was shown at the Irish Film Festival in New York City last year and that is where I saw it. The writers and director are Americans who have created an engaging and very sensitively performed coming-of-age story about Irish young adults who spend a summer working on Long Island. The interweaving of characters, their histories and feelings is very well accomplished and the cinematography is so beautiful as to almost be distracting. This is a film that would please a large audience of varied ages. Really delightful.
