Not a bad film, but didn't engage me that much either. I think you have to live in Northern Ireland to really appreciate it. Definitely the least interesting of the Sheridan/DDL collaborations.

Please dont wast your time a promising plot idea wasted on the blandest acting to ever be recorded on film. for a more exciting movie experience try "Watching Paint Dry" also starring Daniel Day Lewis.
