This is the nominations thread for our September monthly movie of 2013.

Nominations are open to movies set in Ireland, that have Irish lead characters or involve issues directly concerning Irish people/people of Irish lineage. As usual there is only one nomination per member.

This thread will remain open until midnight of August 25, Irish time, after which the poll will be assembled for voting to begin.

Declan. :)

Autilian I'm going to nominate "The Secret of Kells".

Its an animated movie by Irish animation studio Cartoon Saloon, I somehow haven't gotten around to watching it yet even though I love animation so this would give me even more reason to get around to it.

Video here

Brian O'Sullivan | 280 comments I'm nominating 'The Last of the High Kings' - A movie from the lates nineties about an Irish seaside town in the seventies. Deals with an irish boy's first love, Elvis, Thin Lizzy and so on. Very good cast if I recall including Colm Meaney, Gabriel Byrne and a few other Irish faces.

Now that I have remembered the movie again I will probably watch it very soon so hopefully it wins and other people will be watching it also. It also helps that it's on netflix.

FYI: In the U.S. The Last of the High Kings appears to have been released under the title Summer Fling. It is available from Netflix as a DVD but not on Netflix Instant. It also appears that you can find it on Amazon Marketplace for about $5 to $7 (and possibly in other places online).
