In America

In America The healing powers of faith, hope and even magic hold sway in acclaimed writer/director Jim Sheridan's (My Left Foot, In the Name of the Father) inspiring, loosely autobiographical crowd-pleaser about a contemporary Irish family facing the adventure of a lifetime in New York City.

Uniquely told through the eyes of two exhuberant youngsters, Christy and Ariel, this riveting, often funny and always compelling story looks at memory, secrets, love, loss, and starting over. But before the children and their parents, Johnny (Paddy Considine) and Sarah (Samantha Morton), can fully embrace the dizzying challenges and wonders of their new home, they must cope with and triumph over the emotional wounds of a past sorrow that haunts each of them.
