The Best Irish Film I have ever seen.
11 October 2009 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

OK... so I had a very small role in this movie as an extra...little did I know that my scene was shot 10 feet away from Jodie Whittaker and Gerard McSoreley...and they were watching me! But to the point, this movie is SPECTACULAR! The story is truly touching and it will have you gasping, laughing, crying, and much more too! Hard to believe also is the fact that this brilliant movie is based on a one man play by the Writer and Director of the movie; Connor McDermottroe. I can proudly boast that this film contains some of the best scenery in my home town, set against the backdrop of 1970's and 1980's Ireland. The story flows smoothly and brings us on the journey of young Occi who struggles with his own mental wellbeing, whilst also trying to care for his mother (Jodi Whittaker) who has been disowned by her father (Gerard Mc Soreley). His journey is tough but makes for great cinema. Caution to parents: This film is most definitely not suitable for anyone under the age of 15 (13 if you are lenient) but is most definitely worth whatever you must pay to see it.
