The Snapper

91' - 1993 - Drama, Comedy - Dialogue: English
Director: Stephen Frears Composer: Stanley Myers With: Tina Kellegher, Colm Meaney, Ruth McCabe, Colm O'Byrne
Sharon Curley, a 20-year-old check-out girl, lives with her parents and four younger brothers and sisters in a small house in Dublin. Sharon is pregnant; her parents get over their initial shock quickly and react well to the news, though they are upset by her refusal to reveal the identity of the father. Sharon' s desire for secrecy is understandable: the baby is the result of a drunken liasion with resolutely unappealing middle-aged neighbour George, the laughing stock of the street and the father of one of Sharon's best friends.
