Meryl Streep can do no wrong as an actress as we all know, but we like to think that taking on the role of Irish lady Kate Mundy was her most challenging yet, mainly because she is one of the few who managed not to butcher the accent. Based on the Brian Friel play, it follows the story of a mother raising her little boy amongst her four sisters in 1930s Ireland whose lives are thrown into turmoil when their elderly ailing brother comes home to die. Along with that, the little boy has his first encounter with his father, who is off to fight in the Spanish Civil War. Also starring Michael Gambon, and Catherine McCormack, it's quality viewing for a Saturday night flick.
