very, very Irish
5 July 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This film is carried on convincingly by Dutch actress Carice van Houten. She plays a psychiatrist who is sent to a remote island at the Atlantic coast of Ireland's province of Donegal.

There she has to work her way in with a very closed, off-handed local community to help a young girl in trouble. This community definitively looks Protestant, and behaves in a Protestant way. The Republic of Ireland is known for her Roman Catholic faith.

Apart from this, 'Dorothy Mills' makes a good watch. Those familiar with Ireland's west coast will warm up to this film's rich use of its scenery & spirits. The latter includes an extensive array of fairy tales, which connects well with 'Dorothy Mills' somewhat improbable plot. These spirits show themselves once again in this film's tragic end: Irish history is littered with tragedy.
