In America (2003)
Sypnopsis: To begin all over again is a classic American dream. But
it is remarkably hard to do, as Irish immigrants Johnny and Sarah discover
when they hit New York City, with their two spunky young daughters, in the
mid-1980s. In pursuit of a dream, the family uses ingenuity and sheer
strength of will to make the most of their new life. With no cash to spare,
Johnny and Sarah settle into a chaotic New York tenement and attempt to turn
the dilapidated setting into a true home. From dragging an iffy-looking air
conditoner across Manhattan to finding make-do jobs, nothing comes without a
fight for the couple. And yet, as they see America as rife with challenges,
dangers and weirdness, their daughters see it as a magical place where
anything can happen, a place that might release them from the anguish of
what has come before. Then, on Halloween, the girls dare to knock on the
door of "the screaming man," a reclusive neighbor named Mateo, and
everything changes. As the family heads for a crisis, Mateo becomes their
unlikely ally in the territory where hope, fatih and even magic hold sway.

I watched Ebert and Roper this week, (for only the second time ever), and they spent a lot of time talking about this one. It really sounds great. I can't wait to see it.
Yoffy lifts a finger...
I watched E&R too Zhora, which I rarely if ever see.
This does seem as though it'll be a very good movie.
I saw this weeks ago and i LOVED it it will probally be my #1 movie of the year
Just watched this one......very good movie. The 2 sisters (who actually are sisters) were absolutely divine. They stole all the scenes!!
Ack! I bought it months ago and still haven't had a chance to watch it.
Did you ever get around to seeing it, Fluff?
