Social Inclusion Film Club

Monday  2nd March   –  This is my Father  The film portrays a tragic love story set in late 1930s Ireland, focusing on the relationship between Fiona Flynn (Moya Farrelly), a beautiful, feisty seventeen-year-old from a middle-class family and Kieran O’Dea (Aidan Quinn), a shy labourer in his early thirties and the search decades later by their son, Kieran Johnson, (James Caan) to find his roots in late 1990s Ireland. The film is told as an interweaving of the nineties setting, where Kieran is hearing the story of his parents and the events of the 1930s. Kieran Johnson grew into adulthood unaware of his parents’ story or of the tragic events that caused his mother to leave Ireland on her own while pregnant.  The story highlights the issues of prejudice , classism, alcoholism and social and religious conservatism in rural 1930s Ireland.
