Movie Review-Waking Ned Devine

Since St. Patrick's Day is coming up soon, I thought I would post a review I wrote of one of my favorite Irish movies, "Waking Ned Devine"

Title-“Waking Ned Devine”
Director-Kirk Jones
Actors-Ian Bannen, David Kelly

Waking Ned Devine

Ned Devine” is a very funny and sweet movie. It is about an old man named
Jackie (Ian Bannen) who lives in a small Irish village called Tullymore. Like
most of the people in the village, Jackie is obsessed with playing the lottery.
One day, Jackie and his best friend, Michael (David Kelly) finds out that
someone in the village has actually won. Jackie and Michael decide to invite all
the lottery players in the town for supper to try to figure out who the winner
is. Jackie and Michael discover that one person was absent and finds out that
the winner has died. Jackie comes up with a plan that Michael will pretend to
be the winner to claim the lottery money. This movie is funny with a great
ensemble cast and a refreshingly original story. I really recommend watching
“Waking Ned Devine”.
