A family of Irish immigrants adjust to life on the mean streets of Hell's Kitchen while also grieving the death of a child.
Samantha Morton, who plays Sarah, was 25 years old when the movie was filmed. She is only 14 years older than Sarah Bolger, who plays eldest daughter, Christy, in the film.
There's some things you should wish for and some things you shouldn't. That's what my little brother Frankie told me. He told me I only had three wishes, and I looked into his eyes, and I don't know why I believed him.
As they arrive in Manhattan, a scene shows traffic congestion, the skyline, and the sky with a crescent moon. The crescent is facing the wrong way for an evening shot. It can't be dawn because a Dow Jones crawler reads, "Stocks finish mixed on Wall Street," and the scene has gotten darker, not lighter. Looks like they flipped the film unadvisedly. Phil Plait in his Bad Astronomy blog made a similar reversed moon observation about an episode of "The Simpsons."
