The Butcher Boy

Warner; rental pricing
Feature; R
Director:Neil Jordan
Cast:Eamonn Owens and Stephen Rea

This moody adaptation of a Patrick McCabe novel is set in Ireland in the early 1960s, when a 12-year-old (a vibrant Owens) discovers his boozing dad and suicidal mom are the least of his problems. In this fragile world of horror and hilarity, Jordan plumbs the depths of the adolescent imagination gone crazy. Need proof? Sinead O'Connor appears as the Blessed Virgin.
