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
This movie gave me a feeling of emptiness and sadness. And I felt pity for the sisters, their whole existence was all the same... But the actresses are marvellous.
An okay movie starring Meryl Streep playing the eldest of 5 unmarried sisters in 1930's Ireland trying to keep life as normal as possible. Her Irish accent was impeccable. This movie had an incredible amount of potential but just seemed to continuously fizzle the last hour... as a matter of fact I am not even sure how it ended. Disappointing.
A strong cast and a a sweet story about sisters in a small Irish town.
