Maureen Duffy: [rushes to the docks and finds Jimmy about to leave] Jimmy McDevitt, will you stop being so bloody stupid? You're just gonna leave and that's it, you can't do that. You can't just mess with people's feelings like that.
[Jimmy turns to her]
Maureen Duffy: God, what an idiot I've been, standing here thinking that you actually cared!
Jimmy McDevitt: I do care!
Maureen Duffy: No, you don't!
Jimmy McDevitt: Yes, I do. You know, for a moment there, Maureen, I thought you and I had something...
Maureen Duffy: We do.

Better than 99% of what Hollywood puts out.
19 July 2006 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

Don't know where this little gem came from, or if it ever appeared in any theater, but it tops most of what comes out of Hollywood these days. It's funny, touching, and a sensory feast for the eyes and ears. If you like anything about Ireland, you'll likely enjoy this movie. All of the performances are excellent. Be warned that is does deserve its PG-13 rating, so it may not be family-friendly for all. It's unfortunate that movies like this don't have enough pull to find a profitable audience, but I suppose that's where Blockbuster and the like can have an impact. It's a bit strange that the overall user rating on IMDb is rather low, but most of the reviews are favorable. In this instance, I think the reviews tell the real story. Give this one a try and judge for yourself.
