Before Mrs Brown's Boys took over the world, our only image of this Irish mammy was the version Anjelica Huston created in this movie based on Brendan O'Carroll's novel, The Mammy. Don't expect to see a live studio audience or a dance number however (although Tom Jones does make an appearance), as this leans more towards the drama side of comedy-drama. It tells the story of a mother in her 60's who struggles to raise her seven children after the death of her husband. Desperate times but funny moments too, this was written by Brendan O'Carroll after all.
