This is one of those movies that just captures your heart. Sweet Irish movie for the whole family. My 13 yr old loved it and so did I! This will become part of our permanent collection. This movie makes you believe that there is a little magic in every corner of your world and that Love can conquer all. Do not miss this film!!!!
A sweet (if sappy) little movie about an orphan boy who's adopted by a kind woman and her gruff hubby who live on a small island (decrepit castle included!) of the cost of Ireland. I just read Anne of Green Gables so I'm feeling open-minded to the cliched orphan theme at the moment.
Beautiful. Magical. Scenic. Heartwarming. Charming. Tearjerker. All my favorite qualities wrapped up in one nice little Irish film. I am a sucker for movies that revolve around children, and this one was no exception..Loved it!!
A very moving Canadian & Irish production about a young orphan who comes to live with a childless couple on a remote Irish island in the early 1960's. Adapted from a beloved children's book, the film is a touching tale of a sensitive boy with a stutter who finds a home and his place in the world.
