The Snapper (1993)
The Snapper is Stephen Frears’ adaptation of the second book in Roddy Doyle’s Barrytown Trilogy. The Curley family is a poor but eccentric and loving Irish family. Oldest daughter Sharon (Tina Kellegher) announces she is pregnant, but refuses to reveal the identity of the father to anyone. Her father, Dessie (Colm Meaney), is supportive, but begins to chafe at the derisive gossip aimed at his family and his daughter. This leads to a confrontation between the two that is, like the rest of the movie, simultaneously funny and sad. The family waits in the hospital as Sharon gives birth to the snapper (Irish slang for an infant).
Ireland’s Great Famine 1845-1849 caused massive migrations. 70% went to USA.

I’m happy to see that you’re great. I’m going to tell you about my family and school.
In my family we are four, my mother, my father and my sister-who is older than me- but she isn’t here now. She’s studying in Finland so I can’t see her in months. I’m so lonely now and I hate it, so I’m looking forward to Christmas, because she’s coming, and probably my grandmother too.
The school is boring, but now I can study what I want and it’s better than last year. My favorite subject is Physical Education, because I like doing exercise, but I hate Catalan, because it’s too boring and I am with all the class. But it doesn’t matter, because there are only two hours a week.
What’s about your family and your school? Write soon, please.
