sweet,coming of age mini saga of young Irish immigrants summering in Montauk,sensitively written and filmed
26 November 2006 | by garrahanSee all my reviews

A sensitive portrayal of young Irish immigrants who come to the United States to work. They enjoy a casual lifestyle while enjoying the company of each other for one summer. It evolves as a "coming of age" mini-saga.The players interact romantically and emotionally whilst seeking to find work and support themselves. Interestingly, it appears that for most of the actors, this opportunity to film in the US was their first acting gig.As a result, the film imparted a sweet, truthful feeling. The writing was smooth; the filming transitionally lovely. While some scenes were of a sexual nature, I would recommend this film as a 13 plus target group without hesitation.
