A priest who is a film buff tries to open a cinema in 1950s Ireland
7 March 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I saw this recently in a sneak preview,I was expecting a bit more from the story and the cast but I was disappointed with both.It started off at a slow pace and stayed that way.That is not always a bad thing in a film,some can be wonderful and slow moving for example Spring,Summer,Autumn,Winter and Spring(2003)dir:Ki-duk Kim,but it would have been good to see it get out of 2nd gear.Martin Sheen could have phoned in his performance with the effort he put in to it and Stephen Rea played the part of... Stephen Rea,surprise that. The cinema was half full and it was a free show,which says a lot.People were laughing at a lot of the customs of Irish people and the influence of the church which was at the height of it's power in Ireland at that time.This saddened me as I was born,reared and still live in that land.Go see it if you want to have a look at rural Ireland in 1956 as the production values were excellent and very accurate.The sad thing about a freebie is that you cannot ask for your money back,but in a recession I cant say no as I paid 13.20euros the day before to see Hugo in 3D in the same cinema.
