I loved it, makes you laugh, makes you cry, and makes you glad you did both.
6 June 2000 | by OB-ShaneSee all my reviews

This is a stunning delightful story of one man's quest to do right by his girlfriend and his community. The Irish humour is great. The writing is tight. The performances are both touching and funny. One to watch more than once.
