Seems like we've been on an Irish movie kick lately, rewatching some old favorites. It started with Watching Ned Devine, a story about a tiny Irish town that conspires to collect on a winning lottery ticket that is owned by Ned who has unfortunately died after writing his name on the winning ticket and watching the results show. Very touching and very funny.
Then it was The Secret of Roan Inish, a bit of a fable about returning to where we belong, selkies, and a little lost boy. The music is haunting, the scenery gorgeous and its story well told.
Waiting for us is The Boys and Girls From County Clare, the story of an Irish ceili band competition. It stars Colm Meany and as always he's perfect. The story is about the competition between 3 brothers, 2 who have left Ireland, to win the ceili band competition. During some parts I laughed till I cried.
