4 out of 10 Hard Time Hard Life
Antony from Longford, 13 Apr 2010
The film is the harrowing life of Angela, her children and her waster husband all set in impoverished rural Ireland. It has some really sad moments, for example the death of her new baby, to the joy everyone had when they were able to get a sheep’s head for Christmas dinner and how the lads, “found themselves”, behind a stone wall.

2.5 out of 10 Pure Misery
KEITH from Dublin, 12 Jan 2008
I'm going to get a tee shirt printed: You Can't Scare Me, I Survived Angela's Ashes! First five minutes, baby dies. Ten minutes later, another. Ten minutes after that, a third funeral. Where does a film go from there? Apparently the sun never shone in Frank McCourt's childhood Limerick and Alan Parker plays up the darkness and despair to the hilt. You can argue it's a classic rags to riches story but Emily Watson and Robert Carlyle both seem miscast and the film never works up a head of steam.

4.5 out of 10 Angela's Ashes
Sue from Kerry, 22 Dec 2008
An extremely moving, well-crafted and well-acted movie recalling the struggle to survive Irish city life in the mid 20th century. I'd always hesitated to see this film, thinking it might be just too depressing.....but it wasn't and had an upbeat ending.

What's it about....
Angela’s Ashes, the Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir, comes to life in this stirring film from acclaimed director Alan Parker (Evita), starring Academy Award nominee Emily Watson (Breaking The Waves) and Robert Carlyle (The Full Monty). Life n impoverished Depression-era Ireland holds little promise for young Frank McCourt, the oldest son in a tightly knight family. Living by his wits, cheered by his irrepressible spirit, and sustained by his mother’s fierce love, Frank embarks...
