Audience Reviews for The Fifteen Streets


Wow. This movie was so wonderful. It was intense and dramatic. It was the story of a family in Ireland at the turn of the century. The O'Brian's were poor, working-class people living in the "Fifteen Street's" an area of town overrun with poverty and crime. John is the protagonist of the story and his brother Dominique is the enemy. If I say anymore I might just spill the beans on the entire movie. It is a must see film!
