Description
Adapted from the play of the same name written by the great Irish dramatist Brian Friel, and loosely based on the lives of the playwright's mother and aunts, Dancing at Lughnasa (1998) is set in 1936 Donegal, as the five Mundy sisters take stock of their lives during the Celtic summer harvest festival. Meryl Streep is brilliant as eldest sister Kate, a bossy schoolmarm and self-appointed warden of the family's propriety, leading a first-rate cast that includes Catherine McCormack as Christina, Kathy Burke as Maggie, and Brid Brennan, who won an Irish Film and Television Award for her role as Agnes. Their lives shift when their older brother (Michael Gambon) returns from Africa a bit worse for wear, the father (Rhys Ifans) of Christina's baby re-appears, and the sisters' livelihood is threatened by the opening of a woolen factory.

"Meryl Streep has made many a grand acting gesture in her career, but the way she simply peers out a window ... ranks with the best. Everything the viewer need know about Kate Mundy, the woman she plays here, is written on that prim, lonely face and its flabbergasted gaze."NYTimes
