For the tenth movie I’ve chosen Waking Ned Devine. It is an adorable film about a group of friends who find out the man who won the lottery died from the shock of it, so they set out to pretend he’s still alive. The whole village is in on it, as the money will be split between them all. It is so cute, and had me cracking up. It’s PG so fine for the whole family- younger kids might lose interest.
Alica McKenna Johnson writes about snarky girls, kind boys, and the adults trying to keep them alive. After day dreaming for the first thirty years of life, Alica finally began writing her stories down, much to the delight of her readers. As Alica sits in her armchair at home dreaming of traveling the world, her diverse characters explore for her listening to music, seeing the sights, and eating exotic foods.

How cute! This is definitely a film that will make me chuckle. And the scenery and characters are great.
Thanks, Alica. I look forward to your blog.
It’s a very cute movie.
Thanks Patti- I always look forward to your comments- as you always comment! It makes me feel loved.
Sadly, I don’t know many foreign films and I love that you post about one every Friday. This movie sounds fun – I do like to laugh.
As you can tell I love foreign films. They show different ways people live and how they think. It makes me a better writer.
I think watching foreigh films makes us better citizens of the world, also.
I have heard of this movie but never realized it was a “foreign film.” I’ll definately check it out. Too bad we don’t have a Blockbuster on the corner I can run to and rent, and I doubt the red box offers it, but I’ll see if maybe the library can hook me up (we’re not into the netflicks thing yet…but this is a testimony as to why we should be!)
Thanks for the recomendation!
I agree- not only do I find other places and people more interesting I feel safer writing about them.
Blockbuster would have Waking Ned Devine- but it won’t have a lot of the others- I didn’t find their foreign film selection all that great- Netflix does have a huge selection. I hope you enjoy it- let me know 🙂
