Trivia

The cinema that James and Fiona go to is the Ormonde in Greystones, this is the same cinema that featured in Father Ted: The Passion of Saint Tibulus (1995). This is probably because 'Frank Kelly' (II) appears in this film and is also Father Jack Hackett in Father Ted. Frank is also a Greystones resident. See more »

Quotes

James: It was true, I was changing Ireland, like Michael Collins and Eamon de Valera... or that guy from Thin Lizzy.

maybe, nice
5 April 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

it is nice, amusing and sentimental. a subjective picture of Ireland. nothing more. two boys. a desire.and much confusion. a joke. without precise ingredients. figures, bizarre business, strange humor. only sin

  • it remains unrealistic. a nice story with a kind of potential. almost


chaotic, almost fake, it is expression of desire to say all. and the result is not impressive. it is nice. and this fact is only refuge. but far to have a little form of common sense, it is only game with old dusty pieces. a drama, a comedy, a crime, adventures. in same bag. it is too much. but the good intentions are a small basic virtue. if ignore you the not inspired character for Timothy Hutton.
