Liam


Set in England between the two World Wars, this film has a similar feel to ''Angela's Ashes''. The eponymous hero is a little boy, the youngest in the family, and we experience what happens in the world through his eyes. There are actually three intermingled stories - Liam, his father, and his sister, each with their own problems brought about by the Depression. Note that the film features a scene of full-frontal female nudity, even though the age restriction does not mention ''N''.

Ian Douglas: When looked back on from a distance, the film deals with the problems that dogma -- whether religious or political -- cause in the lives of people. I found the movie pretty depressing, and am glad to have been spared a Catholic schooling like poor Liam's.
