Angela's Ashes

Angela's Ashes

Rialto Summer Cinema

The Limassol Committee for the Protection and Welfare of Children in cooperation with the Cyprus Children’s Parliament present Alan Parker’s film about a child’s struggle to survive in Ireland in 1935.

Based on the best selling autobiography by Irish expat Frank McCourt, Angela's Ashes follows the experiences of young Frankie and his family as they try against all odds to escape the poverty endemic in the slums of pre-war Limerick. The film opens with the family in Brooklyn, but following the death of one of Frankie's siblings, they return home, only to find the situation there even worse. Prejudice against Frankie's Northern Irish father makes his search for employment in the Republic difficult despite his having fought for the IRA, and when he does find money, he spends the money on drink.

Cast: Emily Watson, Robert Carlyle, Michael Legge, Ciaran Owens.

Members of the PCCPWC will accept donations for the Committee at the entrance.
