You Me and Marley [DVD]
About this deal
You, Me and Marley is a BBC2 television drama directed by Richard Spence and starring Marc O'Shea, Bronagh Gallagher, Michael Liebmann, and Michael Gregory.
But with his lustrous golden locks and expression of mute, bewildered pain, Marley ended up doing a very passable impression of Jen. Beyond the climactic violent incident inspired by the Clegg affair, it is the IRA who is shown to be the most violent in terms of addressing the joyriding event, doling out horrific vigilante beatings and their trademark kneecappings. This seems to be a film that has largely disappeared since it was shown on the BBC in the early 1990s.Based on John Grogan's book, the heartwarming MARLEY AND ME successfully portrays what it's like when an abnormally exuberant family member takes center stage.
Dave Barry, Grogan's fellow South Florida humor columnist, makes an uncredited cameo as a guest at the surprise party celebrating Grogan's 40th birthday.The gang, led by ace thief Sean (Marc O'Shea), is connected with the IRA but couldn't care less about the group. Kirk Honeycutt of The Hollywood Reporter observed that "seldom does a studio release feature so little drama—and not much comedy either, other than when the dog clowns around . Though he tests every limit possible -- chewing through the last threads of their patience and human dignity -- Marley teaches the Grogans about loyalty and undying love. The elder parish priest (James Greene, who forms a pleasing 'Greek Chorus' double act with Lorcan Cranitch's younger priest) refers to the joyriders as "monsters that they created", they being the IRA, represented by the softly spoken, respectable and bespectacled Reggie Devine played by Ian McElhinney. The message is violence begats violence and crime and, whilst each quarter - the British army, the RUC and the paramilitaries - is shown to be savage, it is perhaps the IRA that Reid shows the most contempt for.
The film was shot on location in Florida's West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Miami, and Dolphin Stadium, in addition to Philadelphia and West Chester in Pennsylvania.
I am a member of several private torrent sites and would be more than happy to seed if you are interested in having your own copy. The five Catholic youths in this story live in Northern Ireland, surrounded as they are by the armed-camp mentality of their adults. The nights are filled with car thefts, insane car rides in the stolen vehicles, fights and wild parties. Though no sexual activity is explicitly shown, it's implied, especially in a creaky bed at an Irish inn. Young joyriders Sean, Frances and Marley steal cars and stage races and driving displays, causing mayhem in the streets of Republican West Belfast.
