When Irish Eyes Are Watching.
A new podcast about Ireland and the Irish in film.
Alex, Cliona and Séan write:
Each episode we discuss a film that features Ireland (or Irish characters) as a main element of the story. It was inspired after a stomach-turning viewing of Leap Year (2010)…
Many Irish people may know that perturbed feeling when a moon-faced eejit called Séamus blows something up in a Harry Potter film. Or feel a sting of resentment when Michael Fassbender, Brendan Gleeson or Saoirse Ronan are nominated for “Best British Performance.” Or even just experience a jab of begrudgery when Kevin Spacey saunters into Dublin to make a kooky caper film that turns Martin Cahill into Danny Ocean.
Our podcast is about such feelings.
