Goofs

During the scenes after the funerals of Paddy and Stu, when Ralph asks Fee to look after Meggie, she comes down the stairs and it looks as though her legs are bare. Later in the scene she walks out the front door wearing tights with a black seam running down the backs of her legs. In the next scene with Ralph and Meggie in the garden when she pricks her finger on the rose and runs away she is wearing black tights. See more »

Quotes

Meggie Cleary: Oh I don't understand you. Neither of you. I don't understand that kind of love!
Frank Cleary: Oh, poor little Meggie. You still think love can save us. It's more killing than hate. Hate is so clean, so simple, like being in the ring. With hate, you just keep hitting; you hit until they stop hitting back. With love, they never stop.
