Synopsis

Samantha Morton, Paddy Considine, Sarah Bolger, Emma Bolger, Djimon Hounsou
Two of the most explosive young talents working on the screen, Morton and Considine, unite to star in the semi-autobiographical fairytale of New York from Oscar nominee Sheridan (In the Name of the Father, My Left Foot). Reeling from the death of their infant son, an Irish family relocate to Hell's Kitchen in Manhattan, where they struggle to establish themselves. Intimately told by their 11year old daughter Christy (Sarah Bolger), a child wise beyond her years, this is a funny, heartfelt and humane comedy-drama, blessed by magnificent performances from the actors and devoid of the usual clich├ęs. It is sentimental but never mawkish and at times quietly profound.
Nominated Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, BIFA
