Synopsis

To make ends meet while living in 1967 Dublin, widow Agnes Browne sells fruit and vegetables at her Market Street stall. As she copes with loan sharks, her children’s puberty, and poverty, she keeps her chin up with understanding from her best friend, who is dying, a kind suitor, and a determination to someday see Tom Jones perform live in concert.

Dove Review

Content Description

Profanity and obscenity throughout, used mainly as a cultural device to indicate the characters station in life, but it does become offensive constantly hearing Christ’ name as a mere expletive; some crude, ruckus sexual dialogue; lots of smoking, including a child; a child gambles; drinking. Directed by Ms. Huston, the film presents a hard-working woman of character who reprimands her children for misbehaving, teaches them the consequences of doing wrong, and gives them much love. Alas, the constant misuse of God’s name keeps us from being able to recommend this film
