ABOUT THE MOVIE (from the sleeve): RURAL IRELAND, 1936. IT'S A PIVOTAL TIME FOR THE FIVE UNMARRIED MUNDY SISTERS. EUROPE IS ON THE BRINK OF WAR, THEIR SMALL VILLAGE IS ON THE VERGE OF INCREDIBLE CHANGE AND THE SISTERS HAVE TROUBLES OF THEIR OWN.
THE HEAD OF THE HOUSEHOLD IS THE IMPERIOUS, ELDEST SISTER KATE (STREEP), BARELY HOLDING THE FAMILY TOGETHER WITH INCOME FROM HER TEACHING JOB. HER SISTERS, SAINTLY CARETAKER AGNES (BRENNAN); THE SIMPLE-MINDED ROSE (THOMPSON); EARTHY MAGGIE (BURKE) AND THE ROMANTIC CHRISTINE (MCCORMACK) ALL DO PIECEWORK AND ODD JOBS TO SUPPORT THEMSELVES AND CHRISTINE'S BELOVED ILLEGITIMATE YOUNG SON MICHAEL.
INTO THEIR LIVES COME TWO MEN WHO THREATEN TO DISRUPT THIS DELICATE FAMILY UNION; MICHAEL'S ERRANT FATHER GERRY (IFANS) AND THE SISTERS' BROTHER (GAMBON), A MENTALLY UNBALANACED PRIEST RETURNING FROM DECADES OF MISSIONARY WORK IN REMOTE AFRICA. DESPITE THEIR HARDSHIPS, THE SISTERS ARE ABLE TO EMBRACE LIFE AND ALL ITS COMPLEXITIES AND DANCE WITH JOY IN THEIR HEARTS. DANCING AT LUGHNASA IS A POIGNANT DRAMA FEATURING BRILLIANT ENSEMBLE ACTING, GORGEOUS PHOTOGRAPHY AND MUSIC BY GRAMMY-AWARD WINNING COMPOSER BILL WHELAN (RIVERDANCE).
