In America (2002)

November 17, 2018 - 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Directed by Jim Sheridan with Paddy Considine, Samantha Morton, Djimon Hounsou

From master storyteller Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot, In the Name of the Father) comes this deeply personal, surprisingly timely tale of a poor Irish family coming to America with their two spunky young daughters, only to find that pursuing the classic American dream is hard to do.

From looking for make-do jobs to grappling with strange new neighbors, none of it comes without a fight. Yet as the family heads for a crisis, they will find a surprising ally in this challenging new home; a place their daughters see as hopeful and even magical.

“…this movie has a supernal glow you can practically warm your hands on” — New York Magazine
