"Waking Ned Devine"
Directed by Kirk Jones
When Ned Devine, from
the tiny Irish hamlet of Tullymore, discovers he has won the national
lottery, the shock kills him. Two friends discover the body and, deciding
that Ned would want them to inherit his new fortune, they come up with a
scheme to claim the ticket. Their plan necessitates the involvement of all
the townsfolk and the ability to convince the proper authorities that Ned
has not passed on. A charming comedy with plenty of Irish color.
