PREVIEW THOUGHTS:  Definitely not the film to go and see if you are feeling a little depressed. This coming of age story is set in Ireland and follows the life of five-year old Frank and his siblings as they are raised in poverty by their caring mother and their alcoholic, but much loved, father.  The movie is wonderfully shot and was talked about for Oscar nominations this year.  At 145 minutes, it is a long movie and the subject matter might be a bit much for some.  But the movie is reported to be filled with wonderful performances, most notably from Emily Watson who plays the mother "Angela" and Robert Carlyle as the father, "Malchi".  Whilst the subject matter is confronting, this should not stop people from checking out this film which shapes as an ultimately uplifting tale of survival against the odds.
