If you want to be depressed
14 January 2018 | by mcrooks46See all my reviews

If you have the blues don't watch this movie as you'll be even more depressed. He is in mourning, we get it. However, for an hour and 15 minutes, he's grieving. The last four minutes, he's a changed man. Hooray! If you want to see parts of Ireland, then watch the movie. If you have the blues, pick another movie, for goodness sakes.
