Storyline

"Irish Eyes" explores the relationship between two Irish-American brothers in Boston born to immigrant parents and raised in a rough, working class Irish neighborhood. After watching their father being gunned down in front of their eyes as children, Thomas and Sean Phelan grow up building their lives on opposite ends of the law. Thomas, the studious and responsible brother, creates a better life for himself through education and hard, honest work. Eventually, he builds a successful career as a US Attorney. Sean, the more rebellious of the two, gets caught up in a life of crime and rises through the ranks to become the head of the Irish Mob. Spanning from post World War II during the late 1950's through the Irish Mob wars of the 1970's and culminating in their adulthood in the 1990's, the story is set to the backdrop of backroom politics and the realities of the Irish Mob and it's gang wars.

A Well-Balanced Piece
5 January 2003 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

I recently saw a preview screening of "Irish Eyes" in Los Angeles and must say I was pretty impressed. A look at the world of the Irish mafia in Boston through the world of two brothers, the film succeeds in that it doesn't specifically focus on the mob side of things, trying to be an Irish "Goodfellas", but is equally concerned with developing an honest story between two brothers and how crime and conflict tear at the familial bind.

Hats off to John Novak, the straight-laced brother with political aspirations and a very suprising Daniel Baldwin, who, as far as I have seen, gives the performance of his career as the criminal brother who has a good heart somewhere deep inside but can't seem to save himself as he becomes steeped deeper and deeper into trouble. Also, a nice debut for director, Daniel McCarthy.

Definitely worth a look.
