This Is My Father Film Poster


This rural Ireland-set drama is a family affair: Paul Quinn writes and directs, his brother Declan is the cinematographer, and Aidan - the most famous of the three brothers - stars. When middle-aged teacher Kieran Johnson (James Caan) comes across a mysterious photo from his mother's past, he realises that he has not been told the truth about his real father. He decides to make a trip to Ireland, accompanied by his young nephew, Jack (Jacob Tierney), and unravel his heritage for himself. The story of his young mother's (Moya Farrelly) romance with farmer Kieran O'Day (Aidan Quinn) then unfolds in flashback. Stephen Rea and John Cusack make cameo appearances.
