Angela's Ashes, Blu-ray BluRay



Alan Parker directs and co-writes this adaptation of Frank McCourt's bestselling memoir.

Born in Brooklyn in 1930, Frank (Joe Breen/Ciaran Owens/Michael Legge) and his family soon return to their home town of Limerick in Ireland following the death of his baby sister.

Malachy (Devon Murray/Robert Carlyle) has difficulty finding work, and his drinking results in wife Angela (Emily Watson) falling on charity to survive.

Frank loses two more siblings when his twin brothers die young, but manages to carve a life for himself in Limerick, eventually finding work as a coalman's assistant.

However, times continue to be hard, especially after Malachy departs the marital home for good.
