About the Movie
From master storyteller Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot, In The Name of the Father) comes a deeply personal and poignant tale of a poor Irish family searching for a better life In America. Through the wide-open eyes of two young heroines, Sheridan transforms a devastating human tragedy into a riveting, humor-tinged story about memory, secrets, love, loss, coming together, and starting over.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The feelings Sheridan evokes in the last scenes are earned: they encapsulate the whole story. And they stay with you long after it's over.
Fresh: Redeemed by the joyousness of family life that Mr. Sheridan captures from his agile and resourceful foursome.
Fresh: The result is a blend of kitchen-sink and magical realism: sentimental, but well acted and freshly observed.
Fresh: Deeply moving and funny.
Excellent cast, moving story.
Fantastic film. Amazing acting by the children (sisters in real life) A gritty story, but utterly human and touching on the challenges of life, love and family.
takes you in !
when this movie just happen to come on , i didn't know what to expect . but what i did get what an utterly amazing story of a family who lived more wonderful and hard as a family . you rooted for this family , ( and what comes to be extended families ) you cried when they cried . i can honestly say the two sisters who are sisters in real life , are charming , and seeing things through their eyes yet knowing what the parents were truly struggling with...i can't explain it more than this . you will NEVER forget you saw this perfectly cast . little , big movie .
