About the movie « Jimmy’s hall !! »
The film « Jimmy’s hall » takes place in Ireland. The main actor is Barry Ward who plays the role of Jimmy Gralton. This film is the true story of Barry Ward : it’s an Irishman who was deported from his country without trial in 1933 because he has built a dance hall that some persones like the father Sheridan did not appreciate. The lightning is quite low. I think it is to highlight the sadness of the film, there are a lot of traditional Irish music. This is sad but full of courage. I did not really like this film because I prefer horror movies.

The movie is at the same time happy and sad, the actors are very good. The soundtrack mixes Irish music and jazz. The costums are superb. Jimmy fights to open his dancing hall but the church doesn’t agree with that because they learn jazz dance and drawing to the young people of the village. The priest says : the education is reserved to the church. It’s captivating.
