I came across this movie while channel surfing yesterday, and IT IS ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES I HAVE SEEN IN A LONG TIME. Completely original content, humorous, and thought-provoking without being pretentious. In essence, a highly intelligent (but charmingly despicable) woman confronts divorce, death, the inadequacy of her children, and most powerfully, her grandson with Down Syndrome. It is pleasant enough if you just want to sit back, have a laugh and shed a tear or two. But it would be a shame to miss the observations on the human condition. The film is set in Ireland, but the characters are Anglo-Irish; the perspective and humor is a pleasant mix of Irish and English. No one in the film is "normal", which allows for some wonderful perspectives on each other's condition. The acting is excellent. Conclusion: unless the word is spread, this film will remain an undiscovered gem.
