For That They May Face The Rising Sun

7.5 IMDB

Based on internationally acclaimed Irish author John McGahern’s award winning novel of the same name, That They May Face the Rising Sun is a vivid evocation of nature, humanity and life itself, set in a 1980’s rural community in Ireland.

★★★★★”… after years ago being spell bound by the book and also moved by hearing John McGahern on radio and in real, reading from this novel. I thought it would be hard to capture the beauty of his words in cinema.  I was not disappointed at all with the film, in fact the opposite it was a powerful and slow moving just like the book.” Audience review

“…an exercise in memory and a reminder to cherish the natural world. Philip King believes the film may have touched people ‘because everything is so virtual, augmented and artificial now, whereas this is tactile, human, visceral” The Irish Times

“1980s Ireland provides a slice of the good life in Pat Collins’ ode to John McGahern’s final novel” Screen Daily
