In 1904, in Dublin, James Joyce chats up Nora Barnacle, a hotel maid recently come from Galway. She enchants him with her frank, direct and uninhibited manner, and before long, he's convinced her to come with him to Trieste, where he has a job with Berlitz. Over time, Nora pulls him through phobias, tolerates his drinking, takes in his brother Stan, and bests Joyce at 'the writin' game' to bring him back to Italy from Dublin where he's gone to open a cinema. But his sexual jealousy threatens the relationship and sends her back to Galway with the children. Is there any way to tame Jim's green-eyed monster? And, will the lad ever get his stories published?Written by
I don`t know much about James Joyce, but I loved this movie. I don`t know if it was because I am a huge Ewan Mcgregor fan or what. I loved the way Nora was totally in love with James. I loved the way Ewan portrayed his insecreties. I loved how that in the end they realise that love can over come most obstecals(A quote from another Mcgregor film)If you will watch this movie as a love story and not analize every single thing ,you will love it to.
