Hands down, the best Irish movie ever made was The Commitments. It had soul, it had passion, it had MUSIC! The early 90′s movie (can we call it a classic yet?) won BAFTA’s for best film and best director and it produced one of the greatest soundtracks of all time.
While this is an excellent movie to celebrate with on St. Patrick’s day it probably should not be what you screen for the family while you munch on yummy green food.
Luckily there any many Irish movies that are perfect for kids. These movies have heart, silliness, luck, and some even have tap your feet music. Find a movie and start a new tradition!
As a bonus I have included some of my favorite Irish films that I know you will love (after the kids are in bed, of course)!
