In America


USA / Ireland 2002, 101 minutes
Dir. Jim Sheridan
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama / Sociology


Aroview: Heartfelt fable about a down-at-heel Irish immigrant family who take up residence in a New York slum where their fortune comes to be affected by a mysterious African neighbour.

Stamped with veteran director Jim Sheridan’s seal of quality and co-written - perhaps a little too forgivingly - with his two daughters, this favours American-style emotional sweep over the working-class reality of the immigrant experience, but it’s the backstory of loss, faith and family bonds that’s more likely to catch those receptive to its sentimental charm.
