Star crossed lovers romance with an Irish & Canadian setting
15 January 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I liked this quite a bit. I will admit though that I initially only turned it on because I saw Allan Hawco's name attached. Jokes on me too because sadly he sports a bad 70's haircut and is beat up throughout most of the movie. This was also obviously made before he decided to hit the gym for all those shirtless scenes he finds himself in, in 'Republic Of Doyle'. Still I ended up getting quite involved with this bittersweet love story and really enjoyed the small Irish village setting and all of its colourful characters. Beautiful scenery throughout too.

This takes place in 1969 and (Hawco) is Michael, a student of poetry and geology from Newfoundland who travels to Ireland to explore unusual mineral formations. While staying at a small inn he meets Kathleen (Sarah Greene), a beautiful young woman who works at a neighborhood pub, he is immediately drawn to her and scandal erupts, with the villagers all going a bit nuts at the thought of the pair entering into a romance as Kathleen is destined to join the convent as per her mothers dying wish.

Yes this is a love story and it keeps you hanging too, not until the last minute do we know if Michael and Kathleen will get their happily-ever-after... 03.13
