Jimmy’s Hall is a period piece based on the life of activist Jimmy Gralton who, after ten years of exile to New York, returns to his Irish home town in an effort to ‘restart’ his life and care for his sick mother. Having learned a thing or two about American culture while he was away, he decides to re-open a meeting hall which quickly becomes the gathering place for the local youth, and the thorn in the local priest’s side. It’s an intelligent, well-acted movie which emphasizes a good story, strong characters, and even a dollop of Irish humour.109 minutes
