Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/02/23 Full Review Jennifer H This movie was absolutely beautiful. The acting, the cinematography, the beautiful story. An absolute joy. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/02/23 Full Review Karen B Loved the movie - didn't realize it was in Irish - or "Gaeilge" to be specific - and think actually that added to the experience. I had read the book, Foster, and found the movie engendered a similar emotional experience. It is short but packs a punch. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/06/23 Full Review Danie Utterly superb movie. What a movie should be, but so rarely is. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Mike Loved the ending...... Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/28/23 Full Review Read all reviews
