Commercial director Kirk Jones makes his feature directing debut with a story about a small town in Ireland called Tulaigh More, where one of their 52 inhabitants wins the lotto jackpot of nearly seven million pounds.

Overview

Just as the charming British film The Full Monty told the story of simple men willing to shed their clothes for money, Waking Ned Devine is the story of older Irish men who pursue money and take off their clothes. Commercial director Kirk Jones makes his feature directing debut with a story about a small town in Ireland called Tulaigh More, where one of their 52 inhabitants wins the lotto jackpot of nearly seven million pounds. When nobody claims it, the town goes on a search to find out why. They find the winner, old Ned Devine, dead -- a smile on his face, clutching the winning ticket. Well, in Ireland, the lottery winnings must be claimed by the purchaser, which puts the town in a spot -- if the lottery officials discover Devine dead, he forfeits his money. What ensues is a community coming together in hopes of getting his money to split 51 ways. What they learn is the importance of friendship and the true value of money. To reveal any more would spoil some major surprises, but suffice it to say, it involves aging actors David Kelly, 69, and Ian Bannen, 70, naked.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Scrubs star Zach Braff displays astonishing versatility as the writer, director, and leading man of this charming, visually striking independent drama, which came from nowhere to captivate critics and audiences in 2004. Braff impressed viewers with his understated, perceptive portrayal of a struggling, chronically depressed actor who returns to his home state of New Jersey for his mother’s funeral. Emotionally numb and ill equipped to cope with his estranged father a miscast but nonetheless effective Ian Holm, the actor lunges into an unexpectedly satisfying relationship with a delightfully eccentric young woman Natalie Portman who turns out to be a pathological liar. Garden State is a difficult movie to classify: In spots it’s very funny, yet it’s not really a comedy. It’s also sad, yet not a tragedy. It’s frequently sober and contemplative but hardly a pure drama. The film is multilayered, like life itself. Branff’s script has depth and the characters are well drawn if somewhat ambiguous; we’re never really sure, for example, how to feel about the actor’s former best friend Peter Sarsgaard, a gravedigger who doesn’t think twice about stealing jewelry interred with corpses but goes to extraordinary lengths to do a favor for his grieving friend. We root for a reconciliation between the bereaved father and the son he drove away years ago, but Ian Holm plays the dad as too distant and detached to reach any lasting understanding with his boy. In the end it’s Portman’s character that makes the strongest impression, rousing Braff’s actor from his self-imposed torpor and giving him a reason to reengage. Garden State won’t bowl you over with flashy histrionics or garrulous profundity, but it will creep up on you and leaving you wanting more when the end credits begin to roll.
Barnes & Noble - Bill Pearis
Would-be author Miles Raymond Paul Giamatti is in a rut. He’s divorced, just north of 40, eking out life as a junior high school English teacher -- and every publisher in the business has turned down his novel. Wine is his real passion -- the Pinot Noir varietals in particular -- although his oenophilic aspirations have lately devolved into excess. His best friend, Jack Thomas Hayden Church, a small-time actor who is now lucky to get cast in the odd commercial, is considering going to work for his fiancée's father. Before the impending nuptials, Miles takes Jack on a weeklong tour of California's Santa Ynez valley wineries. Miles is in search of the perfect Pinot; Jack is just looking for a last fling. When they meet two women Virginia Madsen and Sandra Oh, things get considerably more complicated. This is the setup for the warm and funny Sideways, a combination buddy comedy and road film that never travels the obvious path. The most critically acclaimed film of 2004, Sideways lives up to the hype, just as Lost in Translation, winner of the Best Original Screenplay Oscar, did the year before. Director Alexander Payne and writing partner Jim Taylor have crafted a near-perfect little movie that doesn't aim to be big or important. These characters could easily have been portrayed as pathetic losers, but thanks to a sparkling screenplay based on Rex Picket's novel and nimble performances by Giamatti and Church, Miles and Jack are likable despite their deep flaws. It helps, too, that Madsen and Oh make such perfect foils for the wayward duo. As in their earlier gems, Election and About Schmidt, Payne and Taylor juggle the hilarious and the tragic deftly -- arguably to the greatest effect in their young careers. For anyone who has ever found themselves somewhat adrift in life, Sideways will resonate even more deeply.
Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Christopher Buckley’s savagely funny satirical novel about an amoral lobbyist has been brilliantly adapted to the screen by writer-director Jason Reitman, son of comedy producer-director Ivan Reitman Ghostbusters. Aaron Eckhart portrays Nick Naylor, an indefatigable advocate for Big Tobacco who routinely makes fools of the feckless media types and arrogant politicians opposing his clients. Nick loves bragging about his latest maneuvers to his fellow lobbyists Maria Bello and David Koechner while alternately attempting to be a role model to his precocious 12-year-old son Cameron Bright. His effectiveness, however, is considerably diminished when an ambitious reporter Katie Holmes uses her feminine wiles to extract inside information from him. What’s most effective about Buckley’s novel -- and this reasonably faithful screen version -- is that there’s no clearly definable line separating the good guys from the bad guys; both Nick and his opponents are depicted as being equally venal and opportunistic. Refreshingly free of crude humor and related vulgarities, Thank You for Smoking is smart, witty, and delightfully ironic from first frame to last, and for that we are thankful.
