THE SECRET OF ROAN INISH (Theatrical Release USA 1995)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

The Secret of Roan Inish
—good movie that examines early Irish cultural folkore before machines and cars—is really put together well. Despite its need for better portrayal, it creates within the audience a desire to see what is going to happen next due to a heavy reliance on intrigue to carry the story. Many spiritual references in the film create a WOW! piece of entertainment. Very fresh concept drives the story as concern for the welfare of its youngest actor builds. At times, the pace of the story slows as the movie nears its end. This movie is a good watch.
