Critic Reviews for Dancing at Lughnasa
so beautifully captures the details of its time and place and its characters' lives that it's difficult to resist being drawn in.
A meditative film that lyrically affirms the small acts of love, courage, and kindness that knit a family together in the face of hardship and change.
A deftly structured memory piece as beautifully sad as it is charming.
[Director] O'Connor exercises both admirable restraint and disciplined editing. The camera's eye brings us painterly beauty in the harsh Irish landscape.
Audience Reviews for Dancing at Lughnasa
A strong cast and a a sweet story about sisters in a small Irish town.
Where is the plot? Out of curiousity I would like to know if there was actually a plot. I saw some interesting and well-done characters, but I never saw them do much of anything, and nothing ever happened. I am thus led to the conclusion that these actors were paid to make characters and talk, but there was never a script written for them to know what to do in a scene. I'm sorry to those of you that liked the movie, but I couldn't find a purpose or a reason to make this film.
