Film Friday: In America

Throughout the month of March, Pop Culture will feature films celebrating Irish culture. This week’s Film Friday is In America which tells the story of  an immigrant Irish family living in New York City. They must overcome the challenges of starting a new life in a new country and accept the tragic passing of one of their family members. In America is a poignant film with a wonderful cast: Samantha Morton, Paddy  Considine, Djimon Hounsou, and real life sisters Sarah and Emma Bolger.  It was nominated for three Academy Awards and won the American Film Institute Audience Award for Best Feature Film.
