Unlike most of the other reviewer's, my reasons for watching this movie where not based upon the fact that Colin Farrell is one of the actors. I know that he's a very good actor, but I'm really not a fan. Anyway if you're hoping that he's a main characture, sorry, but his part is one of the smaller roles. I first read about this movie, while I was browsing here, at Amazon.com, having read all of the positive reviews (and a few not so positive reviews), I bought it on DVD, and was not disapointed. In my opinion, this is a wonderful minniseries/movie. The actors and actresses all did beautiful jobs portraying their charactures. However, I must say that the performance of Liam Cunningham as Mossie Sheenan seemed to me, the most poignant. The rest of the cast, Elizabeth Dermot-Walsh (Elizabeth), Dermot Crowley (Neely), Colin Ferrall (Danny) and the rest of the cast were all wonderful. I won't bother writting about the plot of the movie, sesne the other reviewers have done such a great job in doing so. Although I will say that the ending, while bittersweet, is beautiful, and exactly what I wished for it to be. I highly recomend this movie.
