[REL] The Last of the High Kings (1996) [Ireland]

aka Summer Fling
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0116833/
[Image]
A coming of age story for people who don't usually like coming of age stories, unfortunately renamed for American audiences a Summer Fling, which it is not about at all. Nor is it really much of a coming of age movie, in the sense the strongest character is the proddy hating Irish Catholic mother, played by Catherine O'Hara, a red haired overly political passionate nutcase who steals the movie from the kids. The kids, by the way, are interesting, amusing, and not idiotic, like those found in most Hollywood comedies. I found the movie entertaining and I appreciated not being patronized. If you're looking for something light, a little Irish, and a pleasant way to pass the time, check this out.
16 year old Christina Ricci has a small but interesting role. The others (Emily Mortimer and Lorraine Pilkington) are past it for FLM, but Emily Mortimer is cute. :onfire
Two younger girls have minor roles (sister of lead actor and sister of Christina Ricci).

If anyone is interested I can release this.

Why IMDB classifies this as country: Denmark is totally beyond me. :bigups Set in Ireland, actors from Ireland and USA, shot in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Anyway, a few screenshots:

The version I have is 1 hr 42 min 46 sec which makes it the USA release. The UK version is a couple of minutes longer. Wonder what they cut? :think :think

I'm presuming because the production company is Danish. I'd probably favour putting it in unlisted (Ireland). How about it admin?
Thanks for this emuler........I'll go for it too. Keep it warm until the 28th! :)
