'mickybo and me'

in my quest to see more movies with actor ciaran hinds i found this treasure. i was up late into the night staring into my computer screen (i rarely watch stuff on the computer) because i loved every scene.

John Joe McNeill, Niall Wright (the boys who carry the story), Julie Walters, Ciaran Hinds and everyone else were perfectly cast and perfectly real. this 2004 irish drama is not available in the states. you can see it on youtube.

my love of the irish began with 'the crying game' and has never faltered. the accent really wows me. the irish storytellers have a brilliant gift for weaving humor through the sadness. i hope you take the time to watch this touching film.
