Irish Movie Review - "Waking Ned Devine" 1998
Waking Ned Devine is a fun off beat comedy about a charming town in Ireland dealing with a winning lottery ticket. A very touching film of friendship, greed, love, community and a spirit that is unstoppable. The movie is filled with wonderful characters and a sense of a place you would enjoy. The movie ends on a great upbeat note with a great song that will fill you with joy.
I loved the relationship between the two old men who conspire to share the winning lottery ticket.
I find myself enjoying a broad range of films from Ireland and hope to make a film there some day.
