A 9 yr old who just wants to share and give to others
Verified purchase
9 year old Damian (Alex Etel) and his 12 year old brother Anthony (Lewis Owen McGibbon) find a sack full of money from a train robbery. Anthony is an entrepreneur and wants to invest the cash in real estate to increase his portfolio along with buying luxury goods. Damian however is a special kid who loves saints. He sees visions of them all the time which influences him to want to give away his money to the poor and needy.

The appearance of the saints is funny. Damian says their name and the years they were alive before talking to them. It’s symbolic of Damian’s conscience. He’s also cute when he asks random people whether they’re poor because he wants to give them money. That’s the main message about sharing along with another about how large amounts of money can cause problems.

A terrific, if sadly under-known film from Danny Boyle
Verified purchase
Quirky, fun and ultimately very moving ‘family’ film (though way more adult in feel than that usually implies) about two young brothers from a working class Irish family who find a bag of cash. One wants to spend it, invest it, use it, but the other feels compelled to follow the lead of the saints and give it to the poor.

A film with a lovely sense of humor, of family and of the way a kid sees the world. It has a few sticky-sweet moments, but they’re more than made up for by the very real moments of tension, humanity, loss, humor and emotion, Terrific performances all around, and given high energy by the always entertaining film-maker, Danny Boyle. A film with the spirit of Christmas, even if it’s not a Christmas film.

"Money's Just a Thing...and Things Change."
Verified purchase
This film really took me by surprise. It took me a while to actually watch it but when I did it really left an impression. This is a very sweet film. I use the word sweet in an endearing sense. I don't want to spoil the film for anyone so I'll just say the heart and soul of the main character, Damian, is what really struck me. This film has, at it's core, a strong sense of humanity and passion. The characters are very well played by the actors, and Danny Boyle has directed it in such a way that it really captures the attention. The whole creation is brilliantly written, directed, and brought to life by wonderful actors; especially the young lads who played the two brothers, Damian and Anthony. I highly recommend this film for both families and anyone looking for a good experience. Happy Viewing!

1. Interesting cinematography & use of light
2. A cute X-mas film with a good moral to the story
3. Overall good acting
1. A little too religious for my taste but my mum liked it

Very dear movie.

I watched this film as a child with my mother, and rewatching it as an adult was a beautiful experience. It's just as funny, pure, and lovely as I remembered. So many quotable lines, too. My brother and I will still shout to each other, "The Mormons? You stole money from the Mormons?!"

Overall a good family show for older kids - one brief scene of pre-teen boys exploring female anatomy via lingerie ads and a saint looking like she's smoking a joint (but more likely a cigarette considering the context). Yes, the Irish (not British) accents can be difficult for Americans to understand but worth the effort to sift through it.

The dichotomy between the ideas the 2 brothers have about how to manage the money is a great exploration of their different personalities in relation to everything from their birth-order to their relationship with their father and the loss of their mother.

And James Nesbitt (Bofur from The Hobbit and Dr. Jackman from Jekyll) is great it in.

Exceptionally charming
Verified purchase
A family favorite movie that is dripping with charm and cleverness. The performances by the young star is endearing, and Danny Boyle's direction is outstanding. I love seeing the imagination of a child displayed so perfectly, and the innocence inherent in a young mind is refreshing. This is such a feel-good movie that it is sure to put a smile on your face.

Enjoyable with bright youngsters!
Verified purchase
This tale is great. It showcases young boys who are brothers and friends, who look after each other, and who have real plans. However the plans that one has may not be the same as the other, and so the story gets more interesting. A pleasant and hopeful father, a widower, adds to the story with of course a female interest. I loved it! The kids are fantastic!,
