Wow! I loved that little film. I wish they would have shown more of the inside of the house. So much history...it's a shame that the house is becoming surrounded by modern development. Thanks.

Thanks ladies, that was great fun! Maybe Gilbert was hiding up in the tree with Arnie! :perplexed:

Thanks Liz!
It would be interesting to hear Lasse compare the Johnny of 1993 WEGG to the Johnny in Chocolat. By the time of Chocolat, Johnny was a dad too. I also hope to see them work together again in the future!

Thanks Liz! I love the last lines, " This is a performance that finds poetry where others might see only misery. Come to think of it, the whole movie does that." This is going to be a great ride I think! Image

"I think the best dramas are as funny as possible and the best comedies have, underneath them, real substance. So I'm always looking to make the dramatic scenes as funny as possible and the funny scenes as human, as heartbreaking as possible. That to me is why life, like, feels so absurd. Some...

Thanks Liz!

Having been born in the 50's and brought up in the Midwest, I remember watching Bonanza with my family. It certainly was a different time back then. Maybe we can put An Ocean in Iowa on the to read list. I would be very interested in it!

Good morning all. Good question DITHOT! When I was reading the book, one scene did jump out as to 'how are they going to film this'? It was the part early on when S in on the train and inadvertently exposes himself to others. Sorry that this is the first scene to come to mind....but I know that it c...

Good morning all. I'm wondering if a mind under the influence would be switching like that between 1st and 3rd person. Maybe Donleavy did this intentionally to help us better understand the mind of a drinker. So, maybe I should have had a drink of rum before sitting down to read, it would have easie...

Hi all! I had to think a bit about this question. I believe that the haiku was added because it was 180 degrees from Sebastian. In other words, the poems are beautiful in their simplicity, while Sebastian was ugly and complicated. They off set each other and gave us, the reader, a breath of fresh ai...

"He said, ‘I try not to use my mind for anything that has to be remembered’."

This quote sounds like something I would 'second'.
Thanks so much suec! He sounds like a fascinating man! How wonderful to hear Mr. Donleavy in such an intimate setting.

Katie :thanks!:

Thanks DITHOT and Liz! I've always wanted to visit Ireland. With so much history to absorb, a week or two would hardly do it justice! Maybe the key is to go many times. I'll have to start making plans.

Thanks DITHOT! The center court yards make the buildings seem less cold. The college appears to be like an island itself...cut off from the surrounding city.
