Two Good Movies

A Love Divided – The tale of a 1950s Irish marriage pulled apart by religion, and the resulting pulling apart of the community on religious lines. Based on actual events. Stars the inimitable Orla Brady in the lead role, and a cast of others you’ll recognize from Ballykissangel if you’re a fan. Three DVD copies available from the PEI Provincial Library.

Riding Alone for Thousands of Miles – The story of a Japanese man estranged from his son who travels to China to videotape a folk opera in an attempt to form a parental bond. In Japanese and Chinese with English subtitles. Very well acted, and a surprisingly powerful story. Stunning scenery. Available from the PEI Provincial Library on DVD.
