The Irish in Film
A Complete List of Irish Films

 Title  In America
Long after the 'potata' famine the Irish still come to America. And 'in America...' ...it's hotter, dirtier, and more crowded, but you can still land a job -- even without a green card. The Irish immigrants pictured here are loosely based on the director's own family. Jim Sheridan and his daughter, Naomi, collaborated on the writing, sharing their experience as an illegal immigrant family. In their struggle to make it, in New York City of all places, they find kindness and generosity though it is well hidden behind the outlandish lifestyles and peculiar customs of America's struggling under classes. link to Amazon.com Click picture
