About this product
- DescriptionJim Sheridan's autobiographical film, IN AMERICA, begins as Irish immigrants Johnny (Paddy Considine, ROOM FOR ROMEO BRASS), his wife Sarah (Samantha Morton, SWEET & LOWDOWN), and their two daughters drive their wood-panelled station wagon across the Canadian border and into the United States. As they enter New York City at night, 10-year-old Christy (Emma Bolger) records the lights, skyscrapers, and general excitement on her camcorder. Her little sister Ariel (Sarah Bolger) coos at all there is to see, and the whole family is filled with new hope. With no money to live on, they settle into the top floor of a tenement block inhabited by transvestites and drug addicts. The dilapidated building is at first intimidating, but with a little redecorating and a change of perspective, the family turns it into a bohemian paradise. While Johnny goes to auditions, trying to get his break as an actor, Sarah works at the ice cream shop down the street and the girls go to Catholic school. A budding friendship with their ominous neighbour, Mateo (Djimon Hounsou), brings a much-needed spirituality to the family's happy but difficult struggle to survive.<BR>A beautiful and touching film about the risks that families take striving for a colourful, successful, happy life, IN AMERICA is above all a tribute to New York City in all its glory: its diversity of people and opportunity, its violence and grit, and its sometimes overwhelming energy.

Lovely film. Great for all. Saw it advertised on a previous dvd and wanted to see the whole thing. Was not disappointed.

Great product, well worth what you pay and more!!
A truly inspiring film. The acting/cast is perfect. Paddy Consadine is at his best in this one. A tale of grieving family moving illegaly to America, dont let that put you off though, it will make you go through the gamut of emotions. One of my favourite films. Nothing to dislike with this one!
