Jim Sheridan's broadly autobiographical tale of a young Irish actor seeking fame and fortune with his family in Manhattan. Emigres Johnny (Paddy Considine) and Sarah (Samantha Morton) are hoping to banish the painful memories of their dead child. Arriving in the notorious (now trendy) Hell's Kitchen area of New York, they find an apartment in the tenement-from-hell. However, while the parents find the neighbourhood of drug addicts and transvestites a little intimidating, their girls Ariel (Emma Bolger) and Christy (Sarah Bolger) regard it as a magical world.
