‘Black Irish’ is one of the most complex, rich, and heartwarming stories you’ll see in quite some time. It was received with an eruption of cheers after major film festival screenings, and you don’t have to be Irish or from Boston to embrace this gripping story.
In South Boston, where Irish roots run deep and Catholic tradition reigns, the McKay brothers face similar hardships but lead far different lives. While older brother Terry (Tom Guiry) descends into drugs and crime, 16-year-old Cole (Michael Angarano) vies to make the state baseball championships. The one thing keeping young Cole’s head above water is his love of baseball. But he must struggle with his parents Desmond (Brendan Gleeson) and Margaret (Melissa Leo), who are blind to his ambitions, and withstand his brother’s destructive influence. When the two inevitably clash in a life-and-death confrontation, the future of the McKay family are at stake.
