) Falling For a Dancer
is a story of forbidden love and longing. Based on the best-selling novel by Deirdre Purcell, Falling For a Dancer
also stars Liam Cunningham and Dermot Leary. Set in the breathtakingly beautiful and strictly traditional Ireland of the 1940s, Falling For a Dancer
is about the attractive and sensitive Elizabeth Sullivan (Elisabeth Dermot-Walsh). The story begins when nineteen-year-old Elisabeth becomes pregnant after a brief affair with a dashing actor. Shamed, she is forced to marry Neeley Scollard (Dermot Crowley), a widower with a large family who lives in the remote Beara Peninsula. Elizabeth has to come to terms with motherhood, her brutish husband, her mysterious neighbour Mossie Sheehan (Liam Cunningham), her stepchildren and the harsh realities of a rural existence. When a carefree moment at a village dance leads to a violent death, a chain of events is unleashed that will change Elizabeths life forever.
