Immigrants have been coming to America for over 200 years looking for a better life - and Johnny and his wife Sarah are no different. Leaving Ireland after the death of their son, they settle into a cramped and noisy tenement in New York. The couple struggle with the move, but it's the two young daughters, Christy and Ariel, who are able to make the best of it, finding joy in the smallest things and befriending their reclusive and initially forbidding downstairs neighbour. Despite some heartbreaking scenes, this is an ultimately optimistic film featuring extraordinary performances from all the actors, both child and adult.
Daniel Day Lewis made his name starring in this biopic of Christy Brown, an Irish writer who forged an extraordinary career despite his disabilities.
