Unknown Little Gem

In the working-class Barrytown, Dublin, Ireland, the happy Curley family is composed by the father Dessie (Colm Meaney), his wife Kay, three sons and three daughters. When the twenty-year old Sharon (Tina Kellegher) discloses to her family that she is pregnant, she refuses to tell the name of the father. Soon Dessie tells the news to his friends in the pub and Sharon discloses also to her three friends in another pub. But when Dessie's friend Lester (Brendan Gleeson) overhears the old George Burgess bragging to his friends in a pub that Sharon is a great f-word, the life of Sharon and her family changes in Barrytown and she learns that she has only one real and best friend, Jackie. And Dessie tries to become a better father and husband than never, learning how to deal with women.

"The Snapper" is an unknown little gem directed by Stephen Frears. The dramatic story of a twenty-year old girl that becomes pregnant from an old man has also funny moments in the life of a working class living in Barrytown. Therefore the drama does not become heavy since there are relief moments. For people that is not native in English like me, the "snapper" in the title is Sharon´s baby. In Brazil, this film was only released on VHS and with a terrible marketing since the genre indicated on the cover by the distributor is comedy, with a photo of Sharon and her friends laughing in the pub. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "A Grande Família" ("The Great Family")
