A small-town Irish boy's rambunctious nature turns violent in this shocker from filmmaker Neil Jordan (The Crying Game and Michael Collins) Thirteen-year-old Francie Brady (Owens) retreats from his father's (Rea) drunkenness and his mother's (O'Sullivan) depression into a world of manic fantasy that begins with a prank on his nasty neighbor Mrs. Nugent (Shaw) and ends, well, apropos the film's title.
