The Ballroom of Romance

Not Yet Rated| 1 hr. 5 min.

Plot Summary
Rural Ireland in the 1950s offers little in the way of entertainment and socializing, save for dance halls. Bridie (Brenda Fricker) finds herself drifting into spinsterhood and decides to give the hall, essentially a barn located in the fields outside her village, one last try. Although she recalls her younger days of happiness on the dance floor, the present doesn't offer much romance, and Bridie eventually finds herself uneasily in the arms of the hard-drinking Bowser (John Kavanagh).
