When the Sky Falls
First screened in October 2003
Director: John Mackenzie. Cast: Joan Allen, Patrick Bergin, Gerard Flynn, Jimmy Smallhorne, Kevin McNally, Pete Postlethwaite, Jason Barry, Des McAleer, Gavin Kelty, Owen Roe, Antoine Byrne, Rúaidhri Conroy, Fearghal Geraghty. Screenplay: Michael Sheridan, Ronan Gallagher, and Colum McCann.

Twitter Capsule: Less showy than Blanchett film, but unmemorable. Unusual part for Allen; your best shot to see her play soccer.

VOR:   Hard to assess outside its unceremonious dumping to video. You can see why: feels blandly televisual. Not bad but so mediocre as to be self-effacing.
