Flick Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Whilst the plot obviously revolved around the main character - the supporting performances by all the cast made this a very enjoyable and entertaining film.

Well crafted coming-of-age drama based in 50s Ireland and New York. Excellent performance by Saorsie Ronan in lead role. Well worth a look.

This proved to be another good choice, though maybe more of a ladies film!
