Movie Info

Actress Anjelica Huston directed and stars in this drama based on Brendan O'Carroll's novel The Mammy. Set in Dublin in 1967, Agnes Browne (Anjelica Huston) is the mother of seven children, barely making ends meet when her husband dies, leaving her to figure out not only how to support the family, but also how to pay for a funeral. To cover the burial expenses, Agnes resorts to borrowing money from a loan shark (Ray Winstone) who isn't interested in special deals for widows or orphans. Agnes

Set in Dublin in 1967, this extremely old-fashioned melodrama, about the struggle of a young widow to support her large family, is a throwback to the woman's picture of yesteryear and barely a notch above TV-Movie-of-the Week.

What can one say about a film whose idea of comedy is having the two women sit around discussing whether or not they've had an 'organism' or not?

Great characterizations with Anjelica Huston giving bravura performance.

Angelica Huston proves that her career lies in acting, not directing.

A terrific movie that affirms the natural highs of true and lasting friendship.

A rare movie that inspires no reaction whatsoever.

Often tries too hard to be funny.

Huston's skill at evoking public conduct naturally and easily--she lived part of her childhood in Dublin--makes Agnes Browne succeed.
