Critic Reviews for Agnes Browne

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (13)

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.

Audience Reviews for Agnes Browne

Films about widows and kids and money lenders and dreams and best friends and happy endings are just the best thing to watch, any day of the week. They give me hope and lift me up and make me a believer again, if just for this moment.
