Movie Info

In the mid 1970s, a group of six young men left their homes in the West of Ireland, took the boat out of Dublin Bay and sailed across the sea to England in the hope of making their fortunes and returning home. Thirty years later only one, Jackie Flavin, makes it home--but does so in a coffin. Jackie's five friends reunite at his wake where they are forced to face up to the reality of their alienation as long term emigrants who have no longer have any real place to call home. "Kings" speaks directly to the dispossessed and disenfranchised who fill our city streets, to those with nowhere they feel they can really call home and shows us that what we can call home is always much closer than we think.

Audience Reviews for Kings

An Irish version of a Loach or Cassavetes film that fails to transcend its narrow scope, Kings will appeal to Irish speakers, and to those who lived the emigrant experience of 20 to 40 years ago.
