I mentioned it in my post on Calvary, and further back in my “British Invasion” write-up, so let’s shine a light on Waking Ned Devine (1998). This movie doesn’t need to force its spirituality the way Calvary did. Now, the subject matter is completely different — there aren’t any weighty clerical matters to be tackled here, no sexual abuse cases. But it doesn’t matter; there’s still more depth, and a heck of a lot more entertainment value.
A complete delight, Waking Ned Devine sings with joy — the right way to spark religious fervor in my book.
