I Could Read the Sky

I Could Read the Sky

1999, Drama
This impressionistic film about memory and nostalgia focuses on an elderly man (Dermot Healy) in London who is pondering his younger days in Ireland. He is raised in a rural area on the west coast of the country, but eventually leaves to find work in England. He toils as a laborer for decades, often moving around with a group of Irish expatriates. The movie establishes a pensive, dream-like tone that is carried by the narration of the man, now isolated in a small room in a boarding house.
