66. In America

In America (2003)
Directed by Jim Sheridan

A small family drama from 2003 clocks in at #66 on my list because its a magical film to watch. Telling the story of an Irish family's immigration to somewhat modern day New York City after a family tragedy, In America is in parts joyful to watch as well as heartbreaking. It's hard to talk about this film as it really is a hard one to sum up. If my calling it a small family drama has possibly turned you off of the film, then let me tell you that it's a triumphant human story that anyone can relate to. Does that sound better?
P.S. For you Peter, "Say goodbye to Frankie Daddy"
