Plot Summary

In this tribute to James Joyce, Fionnula Flanagan gives a tour-de-force performance as a half-dozen or so women in Joyce's real and fictional worlds. When she portrays his wife Nora remembering their time together, Flanagan captures the era and the author in lyrical detail. As Sylvia Beach, the woman who first published Ulysses, new dimensions concerning the importance of Nora in Joyce's literary visions of women emerge, and when Flanagan interprets Joyce characters like Molly Bloom or a washerwoman from Finnegan's Wake, the beauty of Joyce's language shines through the melodious words.

Trivia As of this writing [June 2018], the film has finally been put out on DVD, in all-region release in Australia. The case cover of the DVD has a still pic of the nude Flanagan from the famous masturbation scene, unlike the American MCI Universal VHS cover in the 1980s in which Flanagan has her nightgown on.
