This 1993 film, the second adapted from Irish novelist Roddy Doyle's “Barrytown Trilogy” (following The Commitments) follows the moral progress of Dessie Curley (Colm Meaney) when he discovers that his 20-year-old daughter Sharon (Tina Kellegher) is pregnant and won't identify the father. Better-than-average sitcom stuff, enhanced by the lively performances, Doyle's own adaptation, and the able direction of Stephen Frears (My Beautiful Laundrette, Hero). With Ruth McCabe and Pat Laffan.
