No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
A whimsical dirty joke of a movie set in a picturesque Irish village.
An amusing Irish coming-of-age comedy set in 1979.
Nivola makes an astounding left turn from his nice husband role in Junebug and Hutton loses himself in the sort of part fit for a Walter Hill film.
Turning Green has been on the shelf for so long that I'm afraid this forgettable film has gone bad.
Initially engaging, witty and charming, but ultimately ends up contrived and bland with an unfocused, half-baked plot.
Sometimes sweet but invariably slight and old-fashioned coming-of-age tale set in 1970s Ireland.
With the help of first-time performer Donal Gallery, this mix of gangster drama and quirky comedy boasts a modest charm that should appeal to young men around same age as the 16 year old lead character, despite a lack of focus and familiar twists.
suffers from a strangely lazy narrative and a bizarre waste of notable actors
An Irish-set comedy-drama, Turning Green is not particularly comic or compellingly dramatic.
It's clear that Mr. Hutton enjoyed every minute of doing gruff, gross thugishness and boorish simplicity.
