This film wonderfully depicts the Irish with their light easy character on the surface and their sexual repression hidden underneath. Oscar Wilde, a symbol of sexual freedom, was born in Dublin. Yet, the local parish theater group can scarcely draw up the courage to perform his play 'Salome.' Set in 1960's Dublin, the Irish here would seem to be behind the times, especially considering the sexual revolution occurring in America. Yet, all in all, the Irish are a tolerant lot who prefer their sex and their sexuality in the dark.
