After reading both of Frank McCourt's books, and A Monk Swimming by his brother Malachy, it was nice to see them in person on screen. The scenes around Limerick brought the book to life. The story about the shower in the English barracks was a gem. I hope the McCourt's continue to write. They are wonderful writers.
