Celebrate March With Irish Films And Music

March is the month we celebrate St. Patrick's Day in many countries around the world. In the United States, we are celebrating Irish-American Heritage Month. Since I am of Irish heritage, I love to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. I have collected some Irish films, videos and music to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and Irish-American Heritage. Be sure to leave a comment in the Guestbook to let me know your favorites listed here or if you have favorites that are not listed.

Order The Commitments DVD - Wide-Screen Collector's Edition

"An irresistible, comic drama from director Alan Parker (Evita, Mississippi Burning), overflowing and alive with passion, humor, and music, The Commitments showcases some old R&B standards in a new light. A headstrong, fast-talking, ambitious young Dubliner (Robert Arkins) fancies himself a promoter of talent, and sets about assembling and packaging a local Irish R&B band. His group of self-absorbed, backbiting, but stunningly talented individuals begin to succeed beyond his wildest dreams, until petty jealousies and recrimination threaten to scuttle the whole deal. A moody, vivid, and soulful exploration of the Dublin club scene as well as a showcase for some wonderful unknown actors, the film (and its wonderful soundtrack) also features the actual band covering classic soul tunes from the likes of Otis Redding and Sam and Dave. It's that combination of soul and soul music that makes The Commitments a special little film. --Robert Lane, Amazon"
