Waking Ned (Waking Ned Devine)

Not sure why they had to rename this one for North American release though it does have a better ring to it. This is as good a feel good story as you could ever want dealing with the antics of a small village in Ireland who try to "keep alive" a deceased lottery winner. It was actually shot on the Isle of Man but who cares, the scenery is gorgeous just like the myriad of characters the film presents us with. In these hard economic times we can all do with more of these well crafted modern fairy tales and I guarantee the ending will put a smile on your face. Also notable for making veteran actor David Kelly a known name in America.
