Editorial Reviews

Ireland 1937. Adapted for television by the novelist herself, Deirdre Purcell's Falling for a Dancer is the compelling story of young, well-to-do Elizabeth Sullivan (Elisabeth Dermot-Walsh - From Time to Time), who becomes pregnant after a fling with an actor and loses her carefree life forever. In shame, her parents banish her to the remote Beara Peninsula to marry an older, widowed farmer (Dermot Crowley - Babel) with four children of his own. Youthful dreams of happiness fade away as Elizabeth learns to cope with motherhood and a loveless marriage. Then, at a village dance, in the only escape she has from her harsh existence, a momentary flirtation with Danny (Colin Farrell - Crazy Heart, Miami Vice) ignites a chain of tragic events. Only with insight and her strength of character will Elizabeth ever survive intact.
