 Title  The Snapper
Though a light-hearted comedy, this film unflinchingly details the sensitive subject of unwanted pregnancy. The story is set in Ireland's new suburbia, a place where the expression "I'll kill ya" is casually used and "messin'" (with people's heads) is as common as saying hello. As the little whipper-"snapper" approaches, the everyday messin' turns into a stinging repartee revealing the deeper feelings toward this taboo subject. Link to reviews Click picture
