Storyline

Vanetia Casey (Maxine Peake), the spirited and impossibly optimistic center of the Casey family, is working hard to get life back to normal after her 38 year-old husband, Conor (Edward MacLiam), suffers a rare stroke which changes his personality. Tweedy American doctor, Ted Fielding, (Will Forte) arrives in Ireland to stay with them for two months: his research grant providing the Caseys with essential financial aid. Vanetia's a dynamo. But with two young kids and both men in the house, she's feeling bombarded and initially treats Ted and his study of Conor with resistance. Only when she observes Ted's calming influence on the family does she begin to value his friendship, and, in return, Ted enjoys their heady, happy-go-lucky world. But Ted's continued presence in the house sets the family on course for an emotional collision. Directed by Academy Award®-nominee Steph Green and featuring Saturday Night Live star Will Forte in an impressive dramatic debut, this life-affirming film ... Written by -Anonymous

Emotive, thought-provoking, sensitive & enjoyable
4 February 2014 | by catherine-moylanSee all my reviews

Before I saw this movie, I had a small idea as to what the main storyline was about. I wondered how the story would be captured on film. It exceeded all my expectations and managed to deliver far beyond that. It is such a sensitive portrayal of a situation. I liked the way the film was peppered with humour and it showed how people can find humour or use humour to deal with the potential sadness of a situation. It's quintessentially Irish without being twee or 'oirish'! The acting is superb also. I often think that a good sign of a movie is one that leaves an impression and becomes the topic of conversation for days/weeks afterwards. This movie made that great impression and I look forward to seeing it again soon.
