Liam (2000) (414 words)
Liam's dad joins the fascists, his brother attends secret meetings of the socialists, his sister goes to work as a housekeeper for a wealthy Jewish family, and Liam searches for answers in Catholicism, under the strict guidance of his haggard mum, his teacher, and the local priest.
The young actor who plays Liam is perfectly cast as an innocent child forced to deal with the harsh realities of life.
Although reminiscent of some recent films, this one is more raw than "Life is Beautiful" and more genuine than "Billy Elliot." This is not a movie for anyone who is merely seeking an escape, as it demands an intellectual commitment from the viewer.
Liam Cosgrave - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1402 words)
Liam Cosgrave (Irish name Liam Mac Cosgair) (born 13 April 1920), served as the fifth Taoiseach of the Republic of Ireland between 1973 and 1977.
To the surprise of his family, Liam decided to seek election to the Dail in 1943 and was duly elected as a TD at the age of 23, briefly sitting in parliament alongside his father W.T. Cosgrave who had founded the State in the 1920s.
Liam's son Liam T. Cosgrave is also an Irish politician who was accused before the Mahon Tribunal of accepting illegal payments from property developers in return for voting to rezone property in Dublin: he resigned from the Fine Gael party when this became known, thereby effectively ending his political career and the Cosgrave political dynasty.
