We gave it a B

An impoverished pair of Irish emigres (Paddy Considine and Samantha Morton) arrive in New York along with their pert-nosed daughters and struggle to survive in a barren tenement flat. There are moments of biting tenderness, yet you wish director Jim Sheridan had let in more of America.
