Storyline

Eddie is a "normal" dad, who loves life, his job and most of all family. He and his wife Jeanie are totally open when answering their children's questions, no matter how embrassing. This backfires when Katie innocently reagles her school with her inside knowledge of carnal pleasures. The headmistress is concernede at the level of Katie's knowledge and at her picture of Eddie dressed up as a 'rough old granny' as part of a bath-time game. Eddie is investigated and forced to exile himself from his family until the matter is dealt with. Written by Association Travelling

A potentially tricky subject matter delivered in a genuinely funny and thought provoking way.
16 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

I saw Jim Doyle's film when it opened the last Galway film festival - fittingly introduced by Jim Sheriden. Fittingly because like Sheriden's last "In America" (which he was editing at the time) Jim Doyle's movie looks at a family taken to the edge and shows you how they deal with what life throws at them with humour, emotion and love. John Lynch is spot on as the devoted father, who through a series of mis-communications and mis-judgements, is denied access to his two children under suspicion of sexual abuse. Hardly a night at the Roxy, except this is! I am not a parent but was very moved by the relationships on screen and really got invloved with Lynch's character's plight as he is such a seemingly nice and humourous person. I since found out that the script was based on a stage play. All credit then that this elevated itself to a movie, really nicely paced and put together. If you like to laugh and still have something to debate or talk about at the end of a movie, this comes strongly recommended.
