Summary: An Irish immigrant family rides a wave of poverty and tragedy as they begin a new life in New York City in this deeply personal work from filmmaker Jim Sheridan ('In the Name of the Father'). Arriving from Ireland via the Canadian border, the family--aspiring actor Johnny, his wife Sarah, and their two daughters Christy and Ariel--struggle to acclimate to life in their new world. It's not until the two girls meet a tortured artist who lives in their rundown tenement that Johnny and Sarah begin to realize their many blessings...while coming to terms with the tragedy they left behind. With Samantha Morton ('Sweet and Lowdown'), Paddy Considine and Djimon Hounsou. Nominated for three 2003 Academy Awards: Best Supporting Actor (Hounsou), Best Actress (Morton) and Best Original Screenplay. "A richly observed, beautifully written and performed winner" (Hollywood Reporter). Directed by Jim Sheridan; written by Jim Sheridan & Naomi Sheridan & Kirsten Sheridan. (PG13) (AC,AL,BN)
