In America

Yesterday I had the chance to see Jim Sheridan film In America, (In a film festival in Mexico City) that features Gavin Friday and Maurice Seezer music, the main song was writen by Bono, Gavin Friday and Maurice Seezer, and is performed by Andrea Corr. The main actress is Samantha Morton (Electrical Storm video)

I liked the movie a lot, is very touching and moving, all the trouble for this family in their fight to find a way of living in a New York city, that at times seems like a monster that will devour them, but where also they find people with the biggest heart ready to give it all for someone in need, all through the eyes of Christy, the older of 2 young sisters , I highly recomend thsi film to everyone, I'm sure you will enjoy it.

About the Bono colaboration, Time Enough for Tears, I liked the song, is a pretty, slow song, kind like a lullabye, even if I'm not a fan of Andrea Corr's voice, I think is a pretty good song.

This link has a review and pics:

I've seen the trailer, and it looks like a good movie

But if it's as depressing as the Angela's Ashes movie, I don't think I can handle that

I'm just back from seeing In America and I have to say that it's brilliant. It's soooooo moving and funny at the same time.

I give it 10 out of 10!!!!
